Rails Girls Poznan 21-22 September 2018

Rails Girls Poznań 2018 - that's all folks!

Another year, Rails Girls rocked the City of Poznan.

During the free two-day workshop we were diving into the magical world of Ruby on Rails and learning how to code our first app.

2018, it's all over now. We'll be back in 2019, promise!

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and be the first one to know when the 2019 registration starts.

You learn designing, prototyping and coding with the help from our coaches.

You need your own laptop, curiosity and a sprinkle of imagination!

Want to help? We are looking for volunteers and Rails coaches. Email us.

Installation party

To build apps and other nice things with Ruby on Rails, we need to set up some software and the developer environment on your computer first.

Who is this aimed for? Women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. We’ve had people of all ages taking part. The workshops are run primarily in Polish (unless there are non-Polish speaking attendees in groups) but knowing some English certainly helps.

How do you choose the attendees? We want a diverse group of people who are motivated and curious about learning.

What do I need to attend? A healthy amount of curiosity and your own laptop. That's all! We provide the venue, food and coffee :)

Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.

I know how to program - How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches.
