Summer of Code

Get Rails Girls students into Open Source software projects!

Welcome to the second edition!

Last year Rails Girls Summer of Code started for the first time and has been a raging success. This year, we will be back and make another Summer full of code happen with your help!

Rails Girls Summer of Code offers three-months full time scholarships to pairs of Rails Girls students, supported by coaches. This community-driven initiative is about learning by doing — expand the knowledge and coding skills by contributing to a great Open Source project.

The Rails Girls Summer of Code program starts 1st of July 2014 and aims at providing sponsored scholarships to 20 students.

This cannot be done without help from our fantastic community. Please consider a donation or help out as a coach, coaching company or supporting organizer!

Hashrocket to support our remote helpdesk

Posted on Wed Jun 25 2014

We recently announced how a bunch of awesome Tealeaf students and alumni will help this year’s Rails Girls Summer of Code participants get the answers-they-need. Today we are excited to share that Hashrocket will also be joining our helpdesk team on Campfire. Committing to 10 hours per week for the entire span of the program, at least one Hashrocketeer will hang out in our support room between 14:00 and 22:00 UTC - every day!

Joshua - Josh - Davey from Hashrocket on their involvement: “Rails Girls Summer of Code is something we’ve been following, and we are really happy to be a part of the program this year. We’re excited to help the students learn more about Rails and see the cool projects that come out of the program.”

And that’s not all. Hashrocket supports Rails Girls Summer of Code as a Silver sponsor AND offered to be a Coaching Company. Hashrocket builds solutions for the Web, iPhone and iPad, and specializes in Ruby on Rails, iOS and Android development. Again, It’s great to have them help us out!

Please join us!

We are always looking for more people to join the helpdesk.

In case you are interested, please register via our Teams application and specify your role as “Helping as a remote coach (helpdesk)”. Then sign in to our Campfire chat room, and you’re good to go!
