Ruby on Rails Courses
Rails Fall Training
Do you have a great idea for a website? Have you thought about a career change to programming? Wondering what all the buzz is about? If you are looking for a way to learn how to program in one of the most popular and easy to learn web frameworks out there, then join us for Rails Fall Training.
Rails Fall Training is a 6 week course with video demonstrations of each concept being explained and weekly Q&A webinars to make sure you’re on track run by Charles Max Wood—host of the Teach Me To Code Screencasts, the Ruby Rogues Podcast, the Rails Coach Podcast, and the Teach Me To Code Podcast. I’ve been programming in Ruby and Rails for 5 years and have been mentoring other programmers for the last 3 years.
So far I’ve hosted one Ruby on Rails Beginner course and held coaching sessions with dozens of Ruby on Rails programmers. Several people have asked when my next course is, so I’ve been busy preparing this material to provide you with the best learning experience I can.
What You Get
Over 8 Hours of Video Demonstrations
I have been producing coding demo videos for almost 2 years at Teach Me To Code. These videos are specifically aimed at showing you the best ways to build web applications in Ruby on Rails. They work through the tricky spots and get you on your way quickly.
The videos will cover:
- Installing Ruby and Ruby on Rails
- Setting up your application
- Model View Controller and separation of concerns
- The Ruby on Rails way of doing things
- Data validation
- Data associations
- Rendering non-HTML Formats like XML and JSON
- Server setup with Phusion Passenger
- The Rails 3.1 asset pipeline
- The Rails Console
- Connecting to databases
Live Q&A Sessions
Each week, I’ll host a call using Go To Meeting where I’ll answer any questions you have and go over any difficult concepts. You can ask me any questions about Ruby, Rails, or programming in general.
Expert Advice: Code Reviews
Each week has a coding assignment. It shouldn’t take you more than an hour or two to complete. Each week, you will submit your code and I’ll go over it and make suggestions on where Ruby and Rails developers do things differently and why.
I will be available via email, Skype, and in the Help group on the course website.
