Getting into tech is hard, not least because of the terminology involved. Back in the day, this reporter was surprised to learn that Ruby on Rails is the name of a programming language, not a fancy cocktail.

So if learning to code is part of your 2017 resolutions but you’re intimidated by the language, we see you. Good news — Women Who Code DC is here to help.
