With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form.

Ladies Learning Code: An Introduction to Ruby for Beginners

  • Startup Edmonton

Ladies Learning Code is a Canada-wide not-for-profit organization providing women (and men) the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills through hands-on workshops in a social and collaborative way. 

Why Ruby?

For this workshop, we say good bye to the web browser and hello to our computer, literally. Ruby is one of the many languages your computer understands and that you can use to speak to it, but is known for being more elegant and natural compared to other programming languages. Ruby doesn’t use semi-colons, preventing those annoying errors that seem to happen for no reason, and often requires fewer lines of code to accomplish the same things as other languages. TICKET REQUIRED!

WordPress Edmonton

  • Startup Edmonton

We’ll kick things off at 5:45 PM, just in time for most people to come straight from work.

We will have two speakers on two different topics — Each speaker will give a presentation on their topic for about 10 minutes, followed by questions and discussion from the floor. At the end of both presentations, there should be time for socializing.

We thank in advance our speakers, and look forward to hearing about their insights and experiences. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
