Big Nerd Ranch Offers Opportunity to go from Beginner to Expert with Ruby and Ruby On Rails Bootcamp, April 25-May 1, 2009
You may not know Jack, but after seven days at the Big Nerd Ranch, you will know Ruby.
Ruby on Rails has become one of the most widely sought-after technologies for creating elegant, easily deployed sites and applications for the web, but for many, the ability to leverage the full power of the framework remain out of reach without a deeper understanding of the Ruby language. Big Nerd Ranch, Inc., premier provider of intensive classes for web developers, programmers and system administrators, solves that problem with its recently created Ruby and Ruby on Rails Bootcamp, April 25-May 1. This seven-day class starts with a two-day intensive introduction to the Ruby language, designed to prime students to unleash the power of Ruby on the Rails framework in the next five days.
"Now more than ever, it's important for programmers to demonstrate a diverse knowledge base," said Aaron Hillegass, Big Nerd Ranch, Inc. founder and president. "Ruby and Ruby on Rails Bootcamp offers an opportunity to quickly master object-oriented programming through Ruby and immediately apply that knowledge into one of the most dynamic and popular web development frameworks available."
Big Nerd Ranch, Inc. is pleased to introduce new instructor, Brian Hardy, who will provide the Ruby training in the first two days of the bootcamp. Brian, who boasts an extensive background in development turned his curiosity and skills to mastering Ruby on Rails upon its introduction. He brings his real world experience developing applications on and off the Web, for projects ranging from the tiniest shell script to massive content-driven web sites such as CNN.com, to the Ruby class. The Ruby portion of the class moves fast and provides intensive instruction to transform the novice programmer into a master of object-oriented programming in Ruby.
By the end of the first two days, students will be able to:
- Understand the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming
- Run code using the interactive Ruby shell and the Ruby interpreter
- Understand objects, methods, and classes, and define classes and equip them with attributes and actions
- Test code and download and install Ruby libraries
The Ruby on Rails training class is taught by veteran instructor and Ruby on Rails developer Charles Brian Quinn and will transfer the knowledge gained in the beginning of the week to developing sophisticated web applications with rich and dynamic interfaces.
The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of $4300 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and transportation to and from the Atlanta airport. Students are encouraged to bring independent projects to class, allowing for input from classmates and individual instructor attention.
