Ruby on Rails class webinar

We’ve decided to offer our popular Ruby on Rails class to remote participants. I’ll be giving a repeat of the first class today (Sunday, Jan 30th) at 4pm PST and classes will be recorded. The class lasts for 2 hours. The regular class time will be Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm PST and there will be 8 class sessions with homework.

The first class is free. We’ll be looking at survey responses and decide on pricing based on a final assessment of the remote experience.

This class is an introduction to Rails and also covers the Ruby language. It is aimed at programmers who are new to Ruby and Rails. I am co-teaching the class with Curtis Shofield. We’ll be using the test first teaching approach which provides a firm foundation in best practices using the RSpec testing framework.

Class Topics
1/25 Introduction to Rails
2/1 Ruby and RSpec
2/8 ActiveRecord
2/15 Power Ruby
2/22 Controllers
3/1 REST and Integration Testing
3/8 Associations
3/15 TBD

If you want to participate, join the google group for more information, look at recent postings for setup details and I will post the URL for the meeting website before the class today.
