Ruby on Rails for Girls
I attended an Atlantic Live event in Washington, DC that showcased fresh ideas in education and technology. Ruby on Rails, the web application + programming language, kept being discussed and touted as what to know for the 21st century.
It didn't seem like Ruby was the what to know, but the basic idea that we all - man, woman and child - should understand coding and web application creation. It is the 21st century, right?
I'm thinking if I'm going to learn Ruby on Rails then I want to bring the Rails Girls to my college. Why not make this an empowering event, slightly social, and be life changing?
