Want to Learn Ruby on Rails?

I will go into a lot more detail in a future post, so with the spirit of getting this information out ASAP . . . .

Durham Tech has created an Introduction to Ruby on Rails course to be taught in the American Underground classroom.  This is something I have been harping about for over a year.  I strongly believe we need people like Durham Tech to step up and help create local talent.  I spoke to their Director a few months ago when we tested a mini-version in the classroom that was very successful.

  • Hi Chris,

    What are the requirements for the ruby on rails class? do we need to know how to write programs or this class is for beginners?
    Is this class 2 weeks, do you think it is possible to learn how to program ruby on rails in just 2 weeks?
    Please clarify, thanks.


  • Class was cancelled due to lack of enrollment. Anyone still interested in taking a RoR class?

    • I would like to take a course and would love it if someone could inform me about other opportunities and what is in demand in the Triangle.
