Finally dedicating some time to learning to code! I’m consolidating my at-home jobs to focus on web work (yay!).
Last night I went to the North Bay DevLadies Meetup. It feels like they are lightyears ahead of me, but they are inspiring me to get my act together and start building my own WP themes.
I would like to go into detail about what I learned, but I don’t have time now. Better to at least give you the links!
To break in the new blog and set the stage for what I hope is to come, a RailsBridge review seems perfect.
I attended my first RailsBridge workshop on June 1st with my 5 month old daughter. The workshop was graciously hosted by Yammer in San Francisco. I can’t say enough good things about this program. The class is free. The food is free. The childcare is free. Did I mention it’s free?
RailsBridge is an entirely volunteer-run Ruby on Rails workshop series for women. They have events in various US cities + Montreal and Panama City. Even if you are completely new to programming, heck, especially if you are completely new to programming, you will be in the right place. The volunteers are super supportive and it is just a nice community to be part of.
Did we learn a lot? Yes. Did I retain much? Uh, not really. It was a good start though. Just having them help set up your computer to run Ruby on Rails is fantastic.
I’m looking forward to attending a frontend workshop in July!
