So, today was my first experience of helping out on a RailsGirls event. It was really good fun, but quite exhausting for everyone. All of us, attendees and instructors, needed a drink afterwards. For the attendees, especially those who have never coded before, it was a lot of stuff to take in. For those of us helping out it was hard work.
But it was a fun and hugely rewarding experience.
However, I think we learnt quite a bit by doing this first session, so I thought I’d brain-dump about what was good, and what didn’t work so well.
