I swear, the next time I hear this I’m going storming elementary schools. Just because that guy over there sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, give yourself a week, a project, and google, and you’ll be a rails-js-bash-mvc-nosql-agile pro.

Is it girls only?

Absolutely not! PWiCS is for humans who support women in CS. I can think of 6 guys who actually come to events off the top of my head. We are currently limited to human members, although canine guests are allowed and encouraged.

How can I get involved?
