RailsGirls San Francisco is a free crash course on how to build web applications with Ruby on Rails.

By Crystal C. Yan (Marketing Intern, StackMob)

My colleagues and I at StackMob are on a mission to bring some RailsGirls love to San Francisco.

RailsGirls San Francisco on June 29-30, 2012 is a free crash course on how to build web applications with Ruby on Rails. You get to learn designing, prototyping and coding with help from coaches. And in addition to coding, you also get to hear great lightning talks and meet other like-minded women.

Think of it as a conference with an immediate deliverable: less talk, lots of action.

This event is for women of any age with basic knowledge of working with a computer. And while most attendees are in their twenties, women of all ages are welcome. All you need is a laptop and passion for learning.

It’s a great opportunity you don’t want to miss out on. The women leading this event are awesome, and have organized these events all over the world: in Amsterdam, Krakow, Helsinki, Berlin, Tallinn, Shanghai, and Singapore.

Apply now to attend RailsGirls San Francsico – applications are due June 25!
