If you've ever had an idea for a great phone or web application, wanted to build your own online social network, or just want to make a website that does something more than link to other websites... Ruby is for you. Come learn with other beginners in our 4 2hr classes and start making your ideas a reality.

Ruby borrows from many of the best programming languages out there, from smalltalk and Java, to Perl and Python... Which is why this particular open sourced program is one of the most suited to beginning programmers, it incorporates a little of everything while still offering a solid programming language that even organizations like NASA, 37Signals, and Twitter use. 

We will be sending out instructions to the students on how to setup a rails development environment on OS X and Windows before the first class. In the first class, we will learn to use this dev environment to create a rails application.

Class 1: October 4th 6:30-8:30pm

Class 2: October 11th 6:30-8:30pm

Class 3: October 18th 6:30 - 8:30pm

Class 4: October 25th 6:30 - 8:30pm

"Often people, especially computer engineers, focus on the machines. They think, "By doing this, the machine will run faster. By doing this, the machine will run more effectively. By doing this, the machine will something something something." They are focusing on machines. But in fact we need to focus on humans, on how humans care about doing programming or operating the application of the machines. We are the masters. They are the slaves."Yukihiro Matsumoto, inventor of Ruby
