Everyone's welcome. You don't have to be an expert, a Ruby professional or even a programmer at all. If you're curious and in the neighborhood, drop by!
Stockholm Ruby belongs to you. There's no leadership and you don't need anyone's permission to organize any kind of event you like, of any size.
Sthlmrb is presenting a beginners course in Ruby on Rails, no programming experience needed.
It's time to learn how to make web applications and be one of the few people that can both have an idea and execute it.
The course will pair you up with a coach able to show you how to go from zero to a functional web app during a few hours at our event in Stockholm.
All you have to do is bring your curiosity as well as a laptop and we will take it from there, no prior experience in any programming language is required.
Before coming to the event we ask you to follow the guide at http://docs.railsbridge.org/installfest/installfest
If you fail to follow through on the guide please note that you can come to the Intro course an hour earlier (at 12:00 PM) to get help with your installation problems, we do however ask you to try to complete the installfest guide since that will make the experience smoother for you.
The event itself will be based around building and deploying a simple web app to Heroku.
You will work in teams with other beginners, and coaches will be available throughout the event to help you if you or your friends get stuck.
You can find the course material/tutorial at http://docs.railsbridge.org/intro-to-rails/
Learn how to write a simple webapp and have it live on the Internet at the end of the day.
Have lots of fun and meet new people.
