Outstanding introduction to Ruby on Rails with a pace that provided a general understanding of the subject. It was enough to get you started and know where to go to learn more.

The instructor, Brian Fountain, was an excellent teacher. He was clear and effective at communicating beginner concepts and next steps for Ruby on Rails. This course had some materials to review before hand, which were helpful in getting into the actually information more quickly. There were some students who had computer or software problems. This slowed us down considerable. But Brian was very nice about helping every person and finding solutions. If you decide to take this, or a similar course, I recommend reviewing materials and software requirements carefully before attending.

The course covers a lot of ground and is taught by Brian Fountain. He was very knowledgeable and willing to help students throughout the class instruction. I would suggest coming to the class with a primer on Ruby under your belt so you aren't completely lost on the first day. I found taking the Codecademy Ruby course the week prior to the class to be very helpful. The value of the course really kicks in on the second day when you create the apps and learn how easily rails can work in your favor. There is still a lot to learn before considering yourself a web developer after this workshop, but it definitely gives you guidance on your next steps, and demystifies many of the basic web development questions you may have as a newbie. Well worth the investment.
