Dust off that portfolio or create one
You'll be glad you did. Education is just a small part of learning to code- practical experience is much more important . Rather than using 'code along with me' type examples, we encourage students to create software on their own from day one.
We focus on the fundamentals
Who uses Ruby?
We use Canadian software success story Shopify to power our secure store and they use Ruby with the Rails framework. For our courses we use the much simpler Sinatra framework which could be a stepping stone for students who want to eventually use Rails. Rails is also used by Groupon and AirBnB, GitHub, ZenDesk, Bloomberg . Startups like it because it's often the fastest and cheapest way to make a product: in Edmonton people like Jobber, Granify and AMA!
You will learn the 'full stack'
You're in the right place to get started
You don't need programming experience. Our meetup group and short courses are aimed at introducing you to programming and/or improving your existing skills.
