Why Ruby on Rails?

Ruby on Rails powers many startup companies all over the world such as Kickstarter, Airbnb, Soundcloud, Bloomberg, Hulu and Github.

Aside from being one of the most in-demand skills, it has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write. This programming language focuses on simplicity and productivity. Thanks to the creator of Ruby, Yukihiro Matsumoto (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yukihiro_Matsumoto), for thinking about the developers first when he was designing the language.

What is a Technical Study Group?

Women Who Code Technical Study Groups are events where women can come together and help each other learn and understand a specific programming language, technology, or anything related to coding or engineering.

We welcome developers of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem! :)
