Roll your own Ruby on Rails Training

August 31st, 2006 Tony Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve been wanting to dive into Ruby on Rails for nearly a year now since I saw that amazing 15 minute demonstration on the official site. I’ve known for a long time now that there is something really wrong about the repetitiveness of the code we’ve had to write in Java/JSP everytime we update an object model or change an interface.

We’re taking on quite a few new projects here that involve heavy development so I decided it was time to take the plunge. Immediately I started looking at the few available quick immersion courses offered around the country to see if we could get up to speed in a hurry. Bummer! Everything was booked.

So then I got the hairbrained idea that if I was going to spend the time locating someone to come do private session in house I may as well start a Ruby on Rails training series here in Raleigh with open registration. After a lot of calling around (thanks Nathaniel!) I was fortunate enough to establish a relationship with David A. Black who is highly regarded in the industry as an excellent trainer with 13 years experience as a professor, an acclaimed author of a new book Ruby for Rails which received a 10/10 rating on Slashdot, as well as a dedicated founding co-director of Ruby Central. So registration is officially open for the Introduction to Ruby on Rails course being offered by Raleigh on Rails October 2nd – 5th!

    This story is somewhat like how Virgin Atlantic was started. Branson got stuck in some place when his plane was cancelled. He needed to leave, so he called around for a charter plane. He figured he could get the other passengers from the first plane to buy tickets from him to spread the cost of the charter. It worked, and everyone got to their destination on time. Thus, Virgin Atlantic was born.

    Fancy becoming a billionaire training course manager? ;-)

    What happened to this training? Was it ever conducted? It’s 2007 now but your website says that registration for Oct 2006 is still open!!
