Yesterday I attended a free Ruby on Rails workshop hosted by Rails Girls. The meetup and the mentorship were both richly rewarding. We didn’t learn in great technical detail but it was a good intro and jumpstart into programming. I’m fully confident that women in Berlin will dive in, continue to learn Ruby on Rails and potentially build powerful web applications in the future. Look forward to the next crash course hosted by several developers in the city (details to be announced soon on www.berlingeekettes.com).
Danke to all the mentors, organizers and sponsors who made this happen. Your time and effort to support the ladies of tech do not go unnoticed. Exciting times ahead.
