“I thought I was just going to a workshop where I would meet some people, score a SoundCloud shirt, and learn a few things about Rails. I had no idea I was stumbling right into a movement that was clearly set out to do something big!
I think the entire attitude of the workshop is summed up with “Why the hell not!”
Why shouldn’t I learn how to program?
Why shouldn’t I make a career out of it?
I think if any of us had doubts that we couldn’t do it, Rails Girls set us straight.”

Wow, what a year it has been! In order to give you an overview of the stuff that has happened so far we put together a small yearbook until end of April (so a lot has happened even after that!)
The yearbook includes some statistics, anecdotes from events, some thinking behind our curriculum and of course a lot of pictures from the hands-on coding events. Hope it will convey the environment, ideas & organization we’re aiming at building!
Here’s to the future - can’t wait to see what happens.
Our year (and a half) in numbers.
*) Guides are being translated into chinese, french, russian, polish and spanish!
