Gathering stats and herding cats

Gathering stats and herding cats

RailsBridge is an international non-profit organisation that provides free Ruby on Rails workshops for women and their friends. In July 2013, after a lot of emails and Skype calls, a handful of Cape Town developers got together and started running regular RailsBridge workshops, creating a fork of the open source documentation and materials.

This talk discusses our journey over the past year and some bits. It covers how we've used agile principles and our strong leaning toward continuous improvement. It'll also cover the techniques we've used for gathering feedback, the changes we've made based on the feedback, and how we're measuring our successes and failures. Improvements and Pull Requests always welcome.

You will get a sticker at the end of the talk.
