Rails Girls was created in 2010 in Finland and has grown rapidly in over 90 cities worldwide. Since 2015 Rails Girls organize events also in Athens, and the next one will take place on May 4th and 5th at The Hub Events.
The goal of the event is to familiarize women of all ages with programming and motivate them to dive into the magical world of Ruby on Rails. During the two-day workshop, participants will develop a web application on the Ruby-on-Rails framework and will have guidance from experienced coaches. They will also be able to attend talks related to programming and hear the experiences of other women in the field of Information Technology.
The 3rd Rails Girls Athens is organized by volunteers and is supported by Visa, Skroutz.gr, PwC Greece and Accenture, as well as, Workable, eproductions, SlashData, Agile Actors, e-food.gr and Funkmartini.
The participation is free. You only need to apply here and to bring your own laptop.
