In this workshop, we'll take you through building a complete web application using Ruby on Rails. By the end of the day, you'll have an application that connects to a database and reads and writes information. Please make sure to come to Installfest if you have a personal laptop that you want to use, Epicodus has several pairing stations that you can use as well. 

We'll meet up on Friday to install all of the software you need, and then spend Saturday learning and writing code. Programmers of all skill levels, even total beginners are welcome. We will have different classes separated by experience level.

This workshop is open to anyone who is a member of a group that is underrepresented in the tech industry and their guests. This includes women, minorities, and lgbtqia. Please message me directly if you are unsure about your status.
