Software you will need to download prior to the workshop.
Instructions for installing the software on your computer in order to use Ruby and Rails.
A ruby-specific curriculum, expanded from the "Ruby for Beginners" slide deck. Still new, with room for your contributions.
A course which teaches how to code from the ground up, using Alex's Learn To Code In Ruby curriculum. It's geared towards people who may never have written code before and teaches just enough Ruby to get across basic principles like variables, objects, and the command line.
The "classic" RailsBridge curriculum (Suggestotron). Takes you step-by-step through making a Rails app, one command at a time, using helpers like
rails generate scaffold, and deploying that app to the Internet.
Build a simple job board from scratch with a little less of the magic of Rails scaffolding. This curriculum is great for a second or third RailsBridge attendee or for students who want to focus on how the app is wired together. (This curriculum doesn't include deploying to the Internet.)
Curriculum for students who have completed the Suggestotron and the Job Board curricula. 'Easy mode' is now OFF - this curriculum won't tell you what to type in!
HTML + CSS for beginners. Make a website, no server required!
The Railsbridge junkyard! Slide decks for opening/closing presentations, teacher training.
