    CoderDojo Minho

    Where: University of Minho, Department of Informatics

    CoderDojo is a global network of programming clubs for kids. Here, young people between 7 and 17 can learn how to code, from the basics of Scratch up to fully featured languages like Ruby, and even some web development.

    CorderDojo Minho takes place in the Saturday just before the conference, at the University of Minho, in Braga, and some of the staff from RubyConf PT is also actively involved. If you're thinking of enjoying some more days in Portugal and thought about bringing your kinds along, this might be worth considering.

    If you're interested, all you have to do is register here (the form is in Portuguese, but you can reach out to us if you prefer).

    Conference Dinners

    Where: Historical center of Braga

    For the last day of RubyConf, we handpicked some of our favourite restaurants in town just for you. Enjoy the fine food and hospitality from northern Portugal, in the company of your fellow attendees. After that, we'll meet up for the Farewell Party!

    We selected some of the best restaurants in Braga, covering all price ranges. Seats are limited, but we can always get some more depending on the interest.

    Use this form to reserve your seat. Please keep in mind that this is an extra service, the dinner price is not included in your conference ticket. The form will be used only to ensure your seat is reserved. Payment will be handled at the restaurant (RubyConf staff members will be there to assist). All restaurants include a vegetarian option.

    The options are:

    A tribute to the Minho region. 'Bira' suggests the traditional dance from Minho, the 'Vira', and 'Namorados' comes from the traditional handkerchiefs of the region, 'Lenços dos Namorados'.

    Farewell Party

    Where: Sé de Braga

    We want RubyConf Portugal to stick with you for many years to come, so we decided to get some drinks to mark the end of the conference, allowing for everyone to talk a bit more and get social.
