Rails Girls Atlanta empowers women of all skill levels improving their software development knowledge using Ruby and Rails.
Our aim is to give tools and a community for women to understand technology and to build their ideas. We do this by providing a great experience on building things and by making technology more approachable. We provide mentored collaborative learning opportunities through monthly meetups, silly hack nights, and beginner workshops.
Learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology. Rails Girls was born in Finland, but is nowadays a global, non-profit volunteer community.
Donations are used to host community learning events. The cost of food for Monthly meetups is about $9-10 per person for 18-25 people. Workshops require venue and furniture rental, catering, and parking passes. Catering and prizes are provided for attendees who participate in hack nights as well. To promote our group, we make custom stickers to share with attendees, and provide thank you gifts for our speakers. During the holidays, we host a community dinner. Extra funds may go towards purchase hardware hacking kits, and additional events!
