RailsBridge Philadelphia is the newly formed Philly chapter of a national nonprofit focused on spreading the good word of the Ruby on Rails programming framework.

On Dec. 3, the group is hosting an all-day workshop at RevZilla’s Navy Yard HQ where they want to teach you how to code for free.

“It will be a day of free workshops geared towards getting attendees familiarized with setting up their own web applications, with mentors available to help along the way,” said New York Code + Design Academy Development Manager (and Swag Report intervieweeConstance Ip. Ip is working with RevZilla developer Lindsay Nauman to make RailsBridge Philly a thing.


Participants of all skill levels are welcomed to attend, and word has it there’s free pizza. The group snagged sponsorship from Chariot Solutions, Linode, NYCDA and RevZilla as a venue sponsor.

We’ve been watching the Ruby on Rails movement for some time now, so there’s certainly a community with interest in the area already. But perhaps the more interesting angle is this group’s self-billed push for diversity. After all, the first mission of the organization back in 2009 was breaching the gender gap in San Francisco’s Ruby community.

“We teach people to code because we believe that the people making technology should accurately reflect the diversity of those using it,” the organization’s site reads.
