Ruby on Rails Workshop

Thanks to everyone who contributed and attended the workshop this October. We hope we were successful in hosting an attitude-free, newbie-safe and mama-friendly tech event encouraging women to join the Ruby on Rails community.

Women are a minority in most technical communities, but in open source communities the numbers are even smaller — by a factor of about ten or more.

Moving forward, we encourage our newly empowered programmers to meet monthly and use their skills towards open source projects in a welcoming, collaborative, mixed gendered environment.

Welcome to BEGaT

BEGaT is a group of Berkman community members dedicated to fostering inquiry, commentary, and scholarship on the role of gender in technology.

We are just beginning to form our initiative and this blog currently represents a work in progress until our official launch later this fall. In the meantime, we welcome all input and interest from the Berkman community.
