Eight RailsBridge Open Workshop 2011 Schedule Announced

Jan 18, 2011

The RailsBridge Open Workshop project, which teaches programmers and non-programmers how to develop web applications using the Ruby on Rails framework, announces eight free workshops in 2011.

"Although not exclusively for women, the San Francisco-based volunteers have focused their workshops on outreach to women in order to create gender diversity in the local tech community," says the press release. To date, the workshop project has trained almost 600 people and almost 500 of them were women.

Who is the target audience for these workshops? Anyone who has a laptop computer and is willing to invest their time in a Friday evening and full day on Saturday to learning how to develop a web application using the popular Ruby on Rails framework.

Below is the schedule for the 2011 confirmed workshops. More of these popular workshops are also being planned and some workshops are already full.
