Welcome, Rails Girls! Fyber Hosts Two Summer Fellows

We’re very happy to welcome two awesome Rails Girls into our office twice a week as they spend the summer programming for an open source project. Joining companies like Asquera, as one of the host companies for the Rails Girls Summer of Code, we’re opening up our workspace and dedicating resources to two women looking to become full-time programmers.

Who are these two mystery programmers? Ute Mayer and Magdalena Frankiewicz were the winners of the Rails Girls’ fellowship this summer. Ute is a computer science student living in Berlin since 2009, and she is also a Rails Girls Berlin organizer who aims to share her passion for technology with as many women as possible. She believes that the best learning comes from hands-on experience, which is why she’s looking forward to working on an open source project this summer.

Magda comes from a background in cultural management and the non-profit sector. She started learning how to code at the beginning of this year, when she joined Rails Girls Berlin as an organizer and started taking part in a workshop with other beginners. She found the Rails Girls and Ruby community in Berlin to be very inspiring and supportive, so she decided to explore programming in more depth this summer.

As far as the project goes, Ute and Magda will be working on a tool for documentation testing. Nowadays, software documentation quickly becomes outdated and samples of code aren’t always verified. This is especially true for projects relying on integration with other changing software libraries. To fix this issue, Ute and Magda will implement a tool that tests code samples in software documentation. Their second project is to build a documentation website for the web framework Padrino.

If you want to follow along, Ute and Magda are planning a weekly podcast to track their progress and will post updates to their website: http://code-padawans.de/.
