I am honored to be able to participate in the first-of-its-kind 4-month long Ruby on Rails Apprenticeship Program sponsored by the Philadelphia chapter of Girl Develop It! and Brian McElaney of Tamman Technologies, Inc. in Philadelphia. I am one of four women given an opportunity to expand our knowledge of both sides of web application development: Server-side and Client-side using Ruby on Rails. The apprenticeship program will include a mentoring component, weekly meetings, email discussion, guest lectures and presentations by local technologists, as well as a group blog for the four partcipants to share ideas, thoughts and lessons-learned as the apprenticeship progresses. We will be working on individual as well as a group project.
