What is Hip? Ruby on Rails Bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch, May 5-9, 2008
Powerful. Robust. Agile. Open Source.
Those are all words that describe Ruby on Rails, the revolutionary full-stack framework for developing elegant and efficient database-backed applications for the web.
Intensive. Thorough. Exhausting. Fun.
Those are all words to describe taking the Ruby on Rails training class at the Big Nerd Ranch. Big Nerd Ranch, Inc., the premier provider of innovative, intensive training classes for programmers, system administrators, and web developers, is offering Ruby on Rails Bootcamp May 5-9, 2008. The Ruby on Rails training class, which features renowned instructor Charles Brian Quinn, provides the most comprehensive and context-driven training on this dynamic and powerful web application development tool. The class has been completely revamped for Rails 2.0. The updated class takes advantage of many of the new Rails 2.0 features including REST, MultiView, ATOM, ActiveSupport, and more.
Charles B. Quinn has garnered an international reputation as a Ruby on Rails developer and co-founder of Slingshot Hosting for Ruby on Rails business hosting. His company, Highgroove Studios, is known for its world-class web application development and consulting services. Tapping on this wealth of experience and knowledge, he is able to provide the next generation of Ruby on Rails developers a real-world context for their instruction.
The class is continually evolving, reflecting the ongoing modifications and additions to the Ruby on Rails knowledge base. Students taking on the challenge of Ruby on Rails Bootcamp will emerge from the class able to:
- Master ActiveRecord, ActionPack, ActionMailer, and ActiveSupport, the major components of Rails
- Understand the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern and how Ruby on Rails conventions promote efficient design
- Use Ruby on Rails best practices to install, setup, design, develop, and deploy new Ruby on Rails applications, as well as update and manage existing ones
- Build, parse, and manipulate XML documents by generating RSS feeds and and create dynamic interfaces using the extensive Ruby on Rails AJAX libraries
- Deploy and maintain Ruby on Rails using Capistrano and a trusted Rails deployment stack
"What sets Ruby on Rails training at the Big Nerd Ranch apart from other organizations teaching the class isn't found just in the syllabus, said instructor Charles B. Quinn. "It's the total immersion environment-the Big Nerd Ranch learning gestalt. The retreat setting of the class promotes a spirit of collegiality where professionals come together to learn. Often, major breakthroughs in understanding happen late in the night as students work shoulder-to-shoulder with their peers analyzing and synthesizing what they've learned in class."
"That," he said, "you can't get in just a syllabus."
