Build a Web app in 2 hours: free Rails intro course

Rails is the framework behind such Web sites as Twitter, Urban Dictionary, Basecamp, A List Apart, Pitchfork, and Shopify. This short course will leave you with the knowledge and skills to build your own Web app using Rails.

We provide a curriculum and one-on-one coaches to make sure you move at the pace best for you. We are open to everyone ranging from people who have never gone beyond opening Facebook to Web experts interested in Rails, and we even welcome those with Rails experience looking to level-up their knowledge.

We are running a separate installfest beforehand, where you can make sure your laptop is ready to rock a Rails app. Highly recommended. You can sign up for the installfest here.

Can't make it? Don't panic! We will see you next quarter (and you're always welcome to other Stockholm Ruby events). Food and space sponsored by thoughtbot.

    If one did not finish the whole tutorial, will there be an opportunity to ask some questions at the upcoming meetups or can we send the questions by e-mail?

    So, if I get rails running on my own I can come to this 2nd part without the 1st one, which unfortunately collides with cocoheads

    It would be nice to get a bit of an overview of the ruby environment too... I really find it to be quite messy and confusing when you start trying to use rails, gems, rvm and bundler.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
