Rails 101 is a great starting point for those wishing to develop their coding skills and produce their first web-application.
The course is comprised of 2 evening clases and 2 workshops. It's not crammed into a weekend so you've got time to absorb and try out what you've learnt.
Class sizes are limited to guarantee some one on one time.
By the end of the course you'll have built a simple web-application.
Some 1 on 1 catch up time is offered on request.
Although a little helps, you don't need to be familiar with Ruby.
How Rails applications are structured to serve web content.
How databases are used to store and retrieve data in the context of a web application.
Getting your application out there on the web.

“Hi, I'm Rory. I'm a freelance developer and I've been building apps with Rails since 2008. This is the fourth time I've ran the course and I've updated it to incorporate feedback from past classes and developments from the world of Rails. ”
“Rory is a superb teacher, he has an excellent knowledge of his subject, yet has the ability to break it down and articulate complex concepts in a manner that really accelerates your learning. Willing to go well beyond the scheduled sessions to make sure that you develop. Highly recommended.” -- R. McNairn, July 19, 2012
What technical level do I need to have before attending?
The course is aimed at those who are already familiar with introductory programming and are looking to up their skill level. This is a common question for people considering attending so the best thing to do is get in touch if you're not sure.
What do I need to bring?
Curiosity and a WiFi enabled laptop. It would also save time if you install ruby on your laptop.
