The Code4LibNYC Winter Workshops are a chance for people in the Code4LibNYC community to drill down on some helpful tools and code. This morning workshop, led by Brian Hoffman, will be a hands-on introduction to Rails, a popular web development framework. This workshop is meant to be library-oriented, participatory, and to work together with the afternoon Introduction to Blacklight workshop, although participants are also able to register for just the morning Rails workshop if they wish.
*Please note that participants must bring their own laptop with Rails installed (installation instructions, as well as contacts for installation questions, will be sent to the registrants a week before the workshop).
