Ruby on Rails 5-Day Boot Camp for $2450

Ruby is a modern object-oriented programming language designed in 1995 by Yukihiro Matsumoto, who wanted "a scripting language that was more powerful than Perl, and more object-oriented than Python."

Ruby has become a very popular language, especially in its integration with the "Rails" web application framework. Rails, or Ruby on Rails, is a set of conventions and tools that allow developers to quickly build dynamic web sites that integrate with relational databases.

This 5-day Ruby on Rails boot camp is composed of two separate classes that can be taken individually or all as a group: the introduction to Ruby, its syntax and constructs; and a follow-on course in Ruby on Rails, the web application framework based on the Ruby language.

  • Intro to Ruby (two days): installing Ruby, basic syntax, objects, methods, properties, classes, and typical constructs
  • Ruby on Rails (three days): installation, models, views, controllers, forms, database integration, and security issues


  • Some previous programming experience (e.g., Perl, C, shell, etc.)
  • Some experience with the DOS or Unix command prompt: understanding of "cd" command and working directories

Ruby/Rails classes offered separately:
