I'm Making a Ruby on Rails Course
I'm beyond excited to share the news that I am making a Ruby on Rails course called Hello Rails!
The course has a dedicated landing page covering all of the details surrounding the course with many more to come. I wanted to publish a vlog/behind the scenes reasoning for the course and how it could benefit you if you're interested in learning the vast framework.
Ruby on Rails has been a big part of my professional life for over 2 two years now. I reached for the framework in an effort to build out an idea I had for a side project called Affinicasts. The application featured videos and courses around the Affinity-Serif platform. Sadly, I decided to go in a different direction and sunset Affinicasts as a result.
While Affinicasts took tons of effort, I learned so much about Ruby on Rails. In an effort to learn even more I started creating tutorials or "Let's Builds" as I like to call them on my YouTube channel. That got increased interest from people all over the world. My channel's subscriber count quickly grew as a result (and is still growing).
The tutorials on my YouTube channel covered both basic and advanced concepts a developer might run into when building their own apps.
As I authored more tutorials I noticed each lack the concept of building a complete app and shipping it to a production server step-by-step. My course Hello Rails is my answer to that void.
I would describe my own teaching style as rather thorough. I don't like to skip important steps of the process as I know someone new to the process wouldn't know some of the conventions or patterns I know. This is true even if it takes more time and effort.
As a result, I wanted to make the course about using Ruby on Rails to build a full-featured web application from scratch that we actually ship to a production server.
The course consists of a book version and a complete video version. I have already finished the book version and am in the beginning phases of the video recording process as I write this. I'm so excited to share it with you when it's complete.
If you would like to get notified when it's live head to the course landing page and share your email with me so I can notify via email when it's ready. They'll be a discount in it for you if you do ;).
