Halloway, an industry expert with extensive Ruby on Rails applications knowledge, will be teaching this exciting hands-on course as well as instructive exercises to a limited group of fifteen students from May 5 - 9, 2008 at the company's headquarters in Washington, DC.
"We are proud to offer an information technology training course focusing on Ruby on Rails for experienced software developers, giving them a head start to using and implementing this powerful web application development system," said Mark Rogers, president of WestLake Training and Development.
