WWCode Tokyo is working in collaboration with WWCode SF and WWCode Toronto to bring together this study group as a community to learn and support Ruby.
We’re a group of women who want to learn Ruby together. We welcome people of all levels. Beginners are especially encouraged. You move at your own pace in this group, so it doesn’t matter if you are a fast or slow learner, or if you attend every week.
