Many people who try to switch to coding as a career don’t make it. And you want to know the number 1 reason employers tell me? Its because they don’t understand the basics.
You can become a coder. While it may seem like a totally foreign language, once you understand some of the underlying principles its actually quite easy – and fun!
Ruby is a fantastically powerful language used by startups and top companies like Airbnb and Twitter. And Unlike languages like Java, C# or Swift, it is relatively easy to learn. But let me tell you: as someone who has worked for years as a professional programmer and hired dozens of coders myself, understanding the basics is critical.
My Newbie to Ruby course if the first part of a series on becoming a professional programmer. It lays the foundations for web development using Ruby on Rails and will set you on a life changing career path. If you try to do Rails without knowing Ruby you will most likely fail.
Understanding Through Exercises & Drills
The course follows a simple pattern. I introduce a concept, give you an exercise and then go through the exercise in detail so that you can solidify your understanding. I also have dozens of additional drills with solutions to help you hone your skills.
Complete in 2 weeks
The course is broken up into 12 sections and you should be able to get through 1 section per evening if you’re doing this part time. So all up you’ll need about 2 weeks.
The Course will Cover
- Predicates and Conditionals
- Input and Output
- Objects and Classes
- Arrays, Hashes and other Data Structures
- Math and much more
Get your coding career off to a flying start with my Newbie to Ruby course.
