Introduction to Rails Workshop

It's been quite a while since I blogged, mainly because I've had my head down writing new workshop material. We're running an introductory Ruby On Rails workshop on July 21 (just two weeks away now), and although it's been a lot of effort I'm pretty happy with the way the material is working out.

One day isn't very long to look at the equivalent of Java and a full Java web development stack, so rather than simply repeat what's already available in books and screencasts we're going to cover things that we find useful in our day to day development work. We'll be giving attendees a whirlwind tour of Ruby, a brief guide to Rails, and then we'll focus on tools and practices that aren't quite so accessible to the ruby newbie.

So if you've heard about Ruby and/or Rails but haven't made the plunge yet, or you know someone like that, go have a look at the course description, check out our pricing policies and send us a bid. At the moment all you need to bid is $100, so you may be getting some really cheap training!
