Get Started

The Ruby on Rails Installfest is a fast-paced, hands-on journey to getting your first Ruby on Rails application up and running live on the Internet. It includes full setup of your development environment and step-by-step instructions on how to build your first app.

Installfest is held regularly in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Perth. We hope to add New Zealand soon (contact us if you can help out) and we have also hosted an event in Singapore.

Check upcoming events for details.

We get your laptop up and running on Rails. This can take a bit of work. You are welcome to bring your Windows, Mac or Linux machines. Our experienced team can help get you running on any of these platforms.

Once you are up and running, we'll direct you to the first tutorials you should start on.

It will be a wild ride getting your first Ruby on Rails application working. This is aimed at a beginners level so that you can get a high-level overview of how the bits and pieces fit together. There are further tutorials for you to work through in your own time as you advance.
