Join our workshop and write your first lines of Ruby, a back-end programming language used by many tech companies – among them AirBnb, Netflix, Shopify, Kickstarter, Couchsurfing, Fiverr & Square. And the best part, you do not need any previous coding experience!
This workshop is for you if you:
- want to get first-hand experience programming
- have an interest to understand what back-end development is about
- are contemplating to start a career as Full Stack Developer
Here’s what you’ll do:
- You will be guided through the basics of Ruby and will discover the pillars of programming, common to most languages (variables, methods, loops and more)
- You will code your first lines of Ruby using Le Wagon’s exercise platform
- You will learn about opportunities getting a career started as Full Stack Developer even if you have no or basic coding experiences
Don’t forget to bring your personal laptop (we recommend not to bring your work laptop due to security blocks).

Meet your coach: Hana Harencarova
Hana is a psychologist, self-taught web designer and web developer and since last two years also a mom. She coaches at Ruby Monstas and with Marion Schleifer organizes a free coding event for women Rails Girls Zürich 2019.
When her daughter was born two years ago she found activities for moms with babies focused on the babies but very little focused on the moms. So I decided to change that and created Moms learn to code (https://momslearntocode.com/).
