What is DevDay anyways?
DevDay, or Developer Day, is a special kind of work day when developers do not work on their usual projects and are allowed to work on whatever they like. The idea of DevDays is pretty common: the world’s most popular email service, Gmail, was born as a DevDay project at Google office!

Another way to share and expand knowledge about newest technologies is coming! We would like to invite all enthusiasts to take part in our workshops, during the KrakYourNet7.
As a group of IT and of course Ruby on Rails enthusiasts, we always like to share our knowledge with students and teach how to become a great developer. There is no better way than learning by practice. This time, we would like to introduce you our workshop as a part of IT event based in Krakow called KrakYourNet.
We believe that idea to participate in useful and interesting events is exciting.
Our workshop helps to upgrade and verify students’ skills. After just couple of steps, you can discover how brilliant and pure ruby’s syntax can be. This was last Tuesday, November the 25th, that we all met at the University of Science and Technology in Krakow. Together with the numerous audience we have taken the advantage in the subject: “A solution to the problem of a quick news access – website parser connected with API”
The Railwaymen Ruby on Rails Summer School 2013 has just completed. It was the end of the training and the end of the summer time. But we are sure, that this time was not wasted.
We decided to organise training, because we feel like we have a knowledge and experience that we want to share with the others.
Railwaymen Ruby on Rails Summer School 2013 was the first edition of trainings organised by our company. Despite having prepared all staff long before the first day of training, we were full of doubts. The first time is the difficult one. And the experience with one-day workshops about similar topics did not help, because Summer School was planned to be a one-month event and we wanted it to be done perfectly.
We started preparations with the selection of the main topic and the topic “AskExpert – social platform. The project and the implementation” was chosen. The topic included the list of lessons:
2. User authentication
3. Social network integration
4. Background jobs implementation
5. Post creation
6. Contact management
7. Post comments
Two of us, Tomek Wielgocki and Kamil Baćkowski was asked to be the speakers and to be honest, they did it well.
Being curious about the feedback from students, we asked them for short evaluation. And we received very positive comments. One of them you can see below:
“I wish it was more courses like this one. Maybe it will prompt the others to promote Ruby and RoR to be more popular.”
These words give as a motivation to plan second edition of training about Ruby on Rails…. and not only. iOS training is something we think about, too. Follow us to get news about next courses!
