We can’t thank everyone enough who contributed and attended the Ruby on Rails Workshop for Women. From the feedback, it appears to have been a tremendous success.
So cool that folks travelled to Boston from as far away as PA to attend Ruby on Rails Workshop for Women!!
…it makes a huge difference to be able to ask someone stupid ?s.
I like being able to say that I deployed my first Rails application today before lunchtime like running a half marathon.
Totally impressed with the amount of Ruby and Rails info the students absorbed.
I want to thank the teaching assistants at #rorw4w. You were never judgmental and always patient.
You know what’s a lot of fun? TAing at #rorw4w.
It was indeed entirely attitude-free, as promised – unique in my experience! I appreciated that so much, and I had a lot of fun, as well.
Open Source Code Crunch
Women are a minority in most technical communities, but in open source communities the numbers are even smaller — by a factor of about ten or more.
The Open Source Code Crunch seeks to promote mixed gender collaboration. Programmers will meet monthly and use their skills towards open source projects in a welcoming, collaborative, attitude-free, newbie-safe environment.
First meeting will be on October 21st at 6pm
The Berkman Center
23 Everett Street, Second Floor
Cambridge, MA 02138
