In this workshop, you will learn about programming fundamentals as well as how to analyze data from Canada’s new Open Government portal! Join us to learn how to speak to your computer and tell it to do things for you. The Ladies Learning Code Ruby for Absolute Beginners workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you will learn: basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages fundamental information about Ruby as a programming language how to speak to your computer in Ruby and return various values how to process, manipulate and analyse data what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will) Full details
