We’re sponsoring RailsGirls

We’re very happy that we’re sponsoring Rails Girls Manchester, a 1½ day workshop at Manchester Digital Laboratory this August 12th. It’s completely free for women to register and attend.

Rails Girls deliver speedy, practical workshops all around the world to introduce women to programming and design, with a style that cuts through stuffy documentation to reach beginners in the technology industry. They’ve succeeded for 5 years and publish their materials, which allows the community to run the workshops and spread the word.

At Bytemark, we want see more new programmers join the industry and Rails Girls is succeeding in reaching out to this underrepresented audience.

The course is being organised by seasoned Manchester geeks Claire Dodd, Tekin Sulyeman and Ben Aldred. If you’re a looking to get into programming, Rails is an absolute treat of a technology for beginners, and Rails Girls will give you a really valuable new skill to build on.

Go now, and register! The deadline for applications closes in a week.
