Hi and welcome to the Rails Girls BNE website
Rails Girls is an international community dedicated to introducing women to software development in a safe and inclusive environment. We run a workshop in Brisbane biannually. It takes place over two days – Friday evening and a full day workshop on Saturday. We have mentors from the Rails community, as well as other people interested in supporting the event who bring a range of skills. We have recently added a second track (Rails Girls Next) for the not so beginners attendees.
Some of our attendees go on to pursue programming full time – they’ve also come back to mentor others which perpetuates the inclusive nature of the event and the growth of the community. It’s an amazing community that fosters learning and empowers the attendees.
We have had six Rails Girls events in Brisbane since June 2013, and we’re keen to keep them going.
Our website has been developed to complement the learnings at the Rails Girls workshops. We currently focus on Ruby tips, Rails stuff, Sinatra, and everything in-between. We want lots of comments and feedback so we can continue to blog and schedule new events about things you want to hear about.
