July/August Workshop Wrapup

We had a great turnout at the July/August Ruby on Rails workshop at Pivotal Labs! More than forty women came out to learn Rails, and we had more than twenty volunteers to help them. The low student-to-volunteer ratio really made the classes go smoothly.

We also had several volunteers who focused on the logistics and that was a huge help.  The TAs had a lot of great ideas for the curriculum that we hope to integrate next time.  Also, huge thanks to TAs who took the lead as teachers at the last minute.  We ended up creating a bunch of small groups which were very effective for learning.  If you are interested in volunteering to help with future workshops, please susbscribe to the google group and let us know how you would like to help!  We welcome people who want to help.  If you have a great idea, we want to hear it, but if you have the energy and time to make it happen, that is even better.
