Ericsson Supports Girls

RailGirls that is. If you have never heard of it before, RailGirls’ aim is to give tools and a community for women to understand technology and to build their ideas. They do this by providing a great experience on building things and by making technology more approachable.

Rails Girls was born in Finland, but is nowadays a global, non-profit volunteer community, and recently held an event in Galway which Ericsson supported with sponsorship and engineers.

If you missed it, don’t worry, I’m sure there will be future events soon, but in the meantime, this might give you a feeling for one of the events if you think RailGirls might be for you and you think you might like to attend:
