When: Saturday, September 4,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $25.00 per person

Where: Red Rock
201 Castro St
Mountain View, CA 94041
(650)[masked]

A step-by-step introduction to Rails 3.0 for newbies. Personal attention given to each student. The structure can be customized according to the students background.

The 4 hour session will give you enough fundamentals and also show you the usual work flow of
a Rails developer. How they go about solving problems while developing an app.

Before the Class : Installation
You need Ruby 1.8.7 or later, Rails 3.0 Beta 4, Ruby gems version 1.3.7.

Ruby 1.9.1 is not compatible with Rails 3.0 Beta 4. Please install Ruby 1.9.2 RC1 instead. Here's a couple of links about it: See the blue note on:
http://guides.rails.info/getting_started.html says "Ruby 1.9.1 is not usable because it outright segfaults on
Rails 3.0, so if you want to use Rails 3 with 1.9.x jump on 1.9.2 for smooth sailing."

Upgrading Snow Leopard to Rails 3.0 Beta 4
Installing Ruby 1.9.1 on Snow Leopard

Before the Class : Optional
Please follow the tutorial here :
http://guides.rails.info/getting_started.html We will be working on this blog app in the class. Some of the things on this tutorial is out dated for Rails 3.0 beta 4. I will also be explaining things that is described in this tutorial from a different perspective. It usually connects all the dots together and the student will be able to see how all the concepts fit together.
