Just getting started with Ruby and Ruby on Rails? Join us Thursday, September 27th for a full day of hands-on training delivered by expert Rubyists in a casual classroom setting. You'll spend the morning learning the ins and outs of the powerful Ruby programming language, before moving on to an afternoon of fast-paced Ruby on Rails development.

Our instructors have delivered feature rich and rock solid Ruby systems in environments ranging from small fledgling startups to large Fortune 500 enterprises. Throughout the day, they'll offer practical advice on tools, project layout, team development, performance tuning, deployment and more.

In the end, you'll leave with a laptop full of code, the confidence of hands-on experience and everything you need to start taking advantage of the power and productivity of Ruby.
