Report Rails Girls Brussels

  1. 1. Report :: Rails Girls Brussels :: 7-8 February 2014
  2. 2. On Friday evening we had installation party. All the software had to be ready so the next day we start on time!
  3. 3. 15 coaches had a dinner on Friday evening The reservation was made on “Rails Girls”, so the waiter was a bit disappointed to see 14 guys instead of, the expected, 14 girls :) P.S. We had a girl coach too ;)
  4. 4. After setting the pace of the day, we started with two presentations on web applications and front-end tools.
  5. 5. And then we started to code! Every coach assisted 2-3 girls during the journey.
  6. 6. We had 5 lightning talks from coaches, all aiming to give more insights regarding their learning curve.
  7. 7. ARTE TV Berlin was all day long with us
  8. 8. When we asked girls to describe the workshop, they replied... Nice balance between coding, talks and more personal time with the coaches and other girls. Not just about Rails, but about coding, learning how to code and coping with difficulties in general. Incredibly inspiring people, among the coaches and the participants. Esther I'd say that it was a great event to break the biases the non tech people have about coding. Angela Awesome! A workshop / get-together for women of all ages and backgrounds where you will get hands-on experience on the basics of making a web page. Annika Beautiful people, great introduction to the ruby on rails, tons of positive emotions :) Eva The atmosphere was very enthusiastic. Wao, 1 coach per 2 students ! These guys really do believe that more women need to become coders! Agnez
