More conferences 2016

Posted on by Maria

Remember how we promised to announce more conferences supporting Rails Girls Summer of Code? We keep our word.

Many new conferences from Europe, America, Africa and Asia Pacific said Yes to our call and granted tickets to our students. Some conferences even offered their help covering travel costs. We could not be more grateful!

Besides just attending a conference of their interest, many teams got the opportunity to give a lightning talk there. For some of them, it will be their first public talk ever. As scary as it might be, this is also a unique experience, and we are happy to help — be it with a practical advice or just words of support. We also believe that lightning talks are a great chance to share RGSoC stories with the world and inspire more women to make the first step towards the career of their dreams.

We are saying a huge Thank you! to all the conference organizers who share our values and team up with us.

And now, the conference tickets go to
