Friday: RailsBridge this weekend at Pivotal
RailsBridge is a monthly workshop targeted at introducing people (mostly women) to programming.
This week's event is actually doing pretty good for volunteers, but if you know anyone who would like to attend as a student there are a lot of spots still open.
