I’ve spent the last weekend with a bunch of 40 girls brought together by the desire of approaching the programming world. Well, it was cool!
Thanks to Rails Girls events, experienced programmers and absolute beginners (like myself!) can get together to break the ice and start doing things.
We know that the first steps are always the most challenging, but all becomes much easier with awesome coaches like Oana, Bert, Joren, Raphael, Javier, Marius, Benjamin, Anne, Dimitri, and many others. Thank you for your enthusiasm and your patience!
For the second time, I had the opportunity to be involved both as supporter and as a participant, and the experience absolutely rewarded all my efforts. I look forward to planning the next edition :)
