FREE Women Learn Coding Event in November

Interested in coding, but do not know where to start?  You are in luck ladies!

What is this?  This is an event perfect for all the women out there who want to learn how to code.  It is a free weekend workshop for women of all skill ranges – from never coded to professionals.  This event allows you to learn Ruby on Rails.

“Rails is the most well thought-out web development framework I’ve ever used.  And that’s in a decade of doing web applications for a living.  I’ve built my own frameworks, helped develop the Servlet API, and have created more than a few web servers from scratch.  Nobody has done it like this before.” – James Duncan Davidson, Creator of Tomcat and Ant

When/where is this?  November, in Pittsburgh’s very own Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History.  4400 Forbes Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15213

InstallFest starts on Friday November 13th, 2015, from 7 – 9:30 PM, the Workshop starts on Saturday November 14th, 2015, from 8:30 – 5 PM, and Sunday November 15th, 2015, even has an after-party for those who attend the event.

Why do this? Why not??  It is free.  It is also an experience that may change your life forever.

“A lot of graduates love it so much that they decided to learn how to code, and even came back as teachers and TAs” – Professor John C. Turchek
