A Little Elasticsearch Hometown Love for Rails Girls Amsterdam

This is a guest post from Lieke Boon, organizer of Rails Girls Amsterdam 2014.

We’re very happy that Elasticsearch will be sponsoring RailsGirls Amsterdam!

Rails Girls Amsterdam is a two days Ruby on Rails workshop, on June 6 and 7, for absolute beginners in the world of programming and web development. The weekend event is free and open to all enthusiastic girls and women!

Rails Girls wants to empower girls to build capacity and acquire the tools they need to conquer the last online frontier. Our aim is to provide tools and a community where women come together to study technology and build their ideas. Come join us and learn sketching, prototyping, basic programming and get introduced to the world of technology!

Rails Girls was born in Finland, but is nowadays a global, non-profit volunteer community. Thanks to Elasticsearch we can provide the girls some awesome refreshments! Are you or do you know a woman who wants to learn programming for free? Applications for Rails Girls Amsterdam are open till May 9th!

Don’t miss out! Apply at!

Editor's Note: We are very proud to sponsor this community building activity for women in our hometown!
