Dear fellow Rubyists!,

This week we launched App Academy (, a
free, full-time 9-week software engineering course; the launch made
the front page of Hacker News. We got hundreds of amazing applicants
applying on the first day; but we want more!

The course is an intensive program in Ruby, Objective-C, and iOS
development designed to prepare students for careers as professional
developers. Our program is very hands-on; students will pair-program
as they work on projects and build apps. At the end, they’ll graduate
with github repos and projects containing thousands of lines of code
showing what they’re capable of.

We also have some leading professionals coming in to give tech talks
in the evenings.  And after the program, we have many companies who
want to come in to talk to our students about jobs and placement.

I’m biased, but I think this is a great opportunity; please feel free
to forward this email.  We’re seeking out the very best students for
the program; for anyone who refers a student who is a good fit for the
program, we are offering a $1,000 referral
( program.
