Ruby on Rails Workshop

Thanks to everyone who contributed and attended the workshop this October. We hope we were successful in hosting an attitude-free, newbie-safe and mama-friendly tech event encouraging women to join the Ruby on Rails community.

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.

Moving forward, we encourage our newly empowered programmers to meet monthly and use their skills towards open source projects in a welcoming, collaborative, mixed gendered environment.

New Ruby on Rails Study Group

Come join us in our quest to hone our Ruby on Rails skills! Using Michael Hartl’s Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial as our textbook, we will work chapter by chapter building our skills together.

Meetings will be held every-other-week on Wednesday evenings starting at 6:30 pm. and will last approximately 2 hrs. RBM Technologies has graciously donated meeting space. Attendees will chip in to buy a communal dinner. Non-alcoholic drinks will be provided, but feel free to bring your own beverage of choice.

The next meeting will be held at RBM Technologies on March 16th, 6:30 pm, 215 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02142 on the first floor across from the entrance to Technique. The information desk can assist if you have problems finding the office.

RBM Technogliges is a short walk from either the Lechmere or Kendall T-stations. On street parking is tight but sometimes you will get lucky. The Cambridgeside Galleria parking lot is closeby and very affordable after 5pm.

Attendees should have read/studied and completed Chapter 1 & 2 before the next meeting.  We will start with Chapter 3. Bring your laptop, a hard copy of the book if you own one, and your enthusiasm.

The Ruby on Rails Study Group for Women is being coordinated by Liana Leahy,  liana at, and Susan McM. Tucker,  smtucker at

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested.
