The purpose of this site is to compile a directory of places to eat, shop, and explore around Sasebo. There are so many hidden gems but finding them can be hard if you don't have a friend to show you the way. With community input, we can make it a tiny bit easier for new arrivals to explore our town and get to know our community.
Hello, Sasebo! was built using Ruby on Rails; specifically by following a Rails Girls tutorial modified by the Rails Girls team in Los Angeles. If you're interested in creating a similar app for your town, you can find the modified tutorial here.
If you are in the Sasebo area and would like to meet-up with other aspiring web developers, there are Code Club meet-ups at the USO every Wednesday.
