Hey, everyone, I've just received word that there is an Intro to Rails class which will be announced in the next few weeks. So for those of you who are interested in this level of class, you should definitely keep your eyes open.

In the meantime, I'm going to go ahead and continue exploring this.

I'm really happy to see so much interest in this level of class. I think sometimes we're afraid to present at the meetups because there is the belief that everyone else already knows everything. Maybe this can be an encouragement to those who haven't presented to give it a go.

Thanks for you feedback and encouragement.

Samuel

I think one of the main prerequisites you should consider though, is getting a running rails platform on various OSes. Though I didn't participate, that was one of the interesting things about the Node.js deal: Friday night was "get it installed", Saturday was "do something with it".

Hey, KCRuby people and others,

I ran out of my medication a couple days ago, which has caused me to think some very strange thoughts. What follows is one of them...

I am considering designing and teaching an "Intro to Web Development with Ruby on Rails" class. It will be a one-day class to get non-rails developers up and running. It will cover bundler, MVC, some OO concepts, maybe deployment, routing, active record, asset pipeline, etc. I would offer the class for free for the first couple of runs (I think).

There'll be some prereqs: HTML, CSS, maybe some programming experience (haven't decided), etc.

This will be a fairly large undertaking for me which is why I'm gauging interest. I'll need to create the curriculum and everything that involves. My wife can help with some of the instructional design, but the rest would be on my shoulders. 

What I need to know from the community is this? Would this be a class you would be interested in? Do you know someone who would be interested in this class?

Nothing's set in stone. Like I said, this is medicationless ramblings. But seriously, I would like to know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Samuel
