The RailsBridge Mission:

To create an inclusive and friendly Ruby on Rails community.

The RailsBridge Guidelines:

  • First, do no harm. Then, help where you can.
  • Bridge the gap from aspiring developer to contributing community member, through mentoring, teaching, and writing.
  • Reach out to individuals and groups who are underrepresented in the community.
  • Collaborate with other groups with similar goals.
