Build your Rails portfolio with 8 super cool web applications in Ruby on Rails. Use it to begin seeking jobs as proof of what you can do, or feel confident to launch projects.

I know the frustration of learning how to code. Trust me. I've been there.

But how did I go from "aspiring developer" to winning hackathons with 150 people and building web applications for a living? Simple. I learned by doing. By building different applications over and over again.

"Spent over £2k on a Rails course and it wasn't half as good as what this course is offering for free. Ta " - Lyndon Joseph

“This class was simply amazing. I learned a lot and I know how to code now! I'm excited to put in the work to master the new skills I've learned. Thank you.” – Montalis Anglade

The 8 app in 30 days course is THE most comprehensive crash course you'll find in Ruby on Rails, styling/design, and best-practices -- or your money back. You can begin with zero skills and become a fee-earning Rails developer in just 30 days.

Zero-to-launch 8 TIMES as you code and own:

  1. Instagram Web App replica w/ design
  2. Tumblr Web App replica w/ design
  3. Evernote or Google Doc - File Storage replica w/ design
  4. ESPN Fan Forum or Hacker News replica w/ design
  5. iMDB (or Broadway Web App) replica w/ design

"Completely hands-on, no-nonsense, Do-It-Yourself Approach adopted from start to finish. This is not just another Ruby on Rails course, its much better than that. Thanks for putting so much into this course, you're the man! " - Osazeme Usen

The best way to absorb unfamiliar concepts is to begin with the large picture in mind and work down to details. This course has been designed to show you new concepts (variables, loops, conditionals, gems, e.t.c.) ONLY AS YOU APPLY THEM and NEVER in theory.

~20 Hours spread over 30 days of clear coding instruction where we will delve into the full process of zero-to-launch!

Chinese Proverb: "I listen, I forget; I see, I remember; I do, I learn!"

What else?

  • A friendly, informal community to support you every step of the way
  • Personal contact with me, the course tutor (yonathan@crashlearner.com)
  • Lifetime access to course materials
  • Hands-on learning to lock that knowledge in
  • A deep understanding of how to code, design and build powerful websites

I will never leave you hanging!

It doesn't matter how old you are or what you do professionally. I guarantee that ANYONE can benefit from this course, whether it's earning a bit of extra cash on the side, changing career altogether or just the freedom to bring ideas to life.

More from former students have this to say:

“Good clear instruction. There are materials floating around online, but Yonathan has put them together in an order that makes sense.” – Jonathan Grove

“Yonathan's tutorial and style of teaching is really relaxed and to the point. A lot of rails tutorials out there either show you too much or too little. His tutorial was the right mix - focusing on getting stuff up and running really quick.” - Manuel Da Costa

This course is both for students who have no experience in programming at all and also for students who have tried Ruby on Rails in the past but want to take their skills to the next level.

* Latest Update: January, 16th 2016

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

  • Methods
  • Predicates and Conditionals
  • Looping
  • 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.

There has never been a better time to switch your career!
