Colearn by @Citizen Space Presents this fast-paced class that launches careers for new Rails developers. In two intensive days, you'll establish the foundation for mastering Rails web development. While no class can claim you'll become a Rails rock star in two days, this class will give you the basics you need to enter a developer boot camp or begin a successful program of self-study.
The topics covered provide the students with principles and best practices of Rails development, including:
* Introduction to programming with the Ruby language
* Step-by-step instruction in building a Rails application
* Techniques and practices of professional Rails developers
* Individualized plans for ongoing Rails training
At the end of the class, you will have the skills to begin building Rails applications on your own, with knowledge of the resources used by professional Rails developers, and a solid foundation to pursue a career or launch a startup.
Daniel Kehoe is known for his popular RailsApps project which offers tutorials and example applications for professional Rails developers. He is a former writer and editor at PC WORLD and NeXTWORLD magazines who has been working with Rails since 2006 as a developer and CTO in various startups. He is known for a dynamic and enthusiastic teaching style and a commitment to empowering students to become successful Rails developers.
