Workshops

Workshops will be on the 4th of February, and tickets will be separate from the conference sessions. Rails Girls will be one of the workshops, but the rest of the line-up is still to be announced.

Rails Girls Next

Join us and continue the learning you started at Rails Girls. Since you have Ruby installed already, we can jump right in!

We've organised three mentor-led tutorials that will help you dive deeper into the world of professional development with Ruby. Tutorials include a look at some of Ruby's more advanced features and syntax, building a Sinatra app and deploying it, test-driven development and more.

Lastly, you will gain a greater appreciation of development work procedures by pairing up to solve coding challenges and using Git for version control.
