The Rails Girls Bangalore 2015 edition was held on 31 January 2015. I had the pleasure of participating as a Coach in this workshop event.
The idea is simple. As a technology community, we believe in encouraging women to join us. Ruby on Rails, a web development framework, makes entry easy for someone new to web technologies. Many of us know web technologies well enough to coach someone new. Why not get together as a community and learn from each other? We could have fun in the process and even launch a few ideas into production!
Rails Girls Bangalore 2015 was held in the premises of ThoughtWorks Bangalore office. To organize the event, a few ThoughtWorkers joined hands with Bangalore Ruby enthusiasts from other companies like Nilenso, C42, and MavenHive. The volunteers rounded up Rails Coaches for the event, spread the word about the event, and took care of logistics. And voila! We ended up having a fun day of learning!
