You visited a Rails Girls Workshop and now want to join a project group to really learn the way of the code? Or maybe you recently coached at a workshop and now want to do it on a regular basis! If that's the case, this little app is just the one for you!
An overview of who meets when, where, with whom to work on what.
To see the current status of the project and who's working on what, go to https://waffle.io/rubycorns/railsgirlsapp
We've had lots of people asking us if this project is open for all to work on and if they can contribute even though they are a) not women, b) not in our project group, c) don't know us, d) some other reason. The answer is of course yes! We are not a closed group and we welcome your PRs. All we ask is that you communicate with us regularly, make clean PRs, test your work, and be nice. If you write some crazy code, explanations are helpful so that we can learn from what you've done and become better coders ourselves in the process. If you have a great idea for a feature & want to implement it, please open an issue, assign yourself to it, and hack away :)
