I’m building a Developer Bootcamp in Dayton focusing on Rails – and
wanting to know if any Rails devs might be interested in partnering up
essentially being an instructor? I’m hoping to run this on a small scale
minimal staff - but tuition will be $10k and I’m expecting 15-25
per 16 week (overlapping terms) so it could be very profitable.
Our curriculum will mostly be online resources and used during the
pre-training phase I.E. BEFORE attending class w/ in-class work being
mostly working on REAL projects, code challenges, etc… always doing it
pairs, and working in teams, learning TDD/BDD and agile methods.
I’m wanting someone to teach more of the testing/agile/team aspects of
coding in Rails and how to deploy apps, stuff that isn’t covered by
TeamTreehouse, Codeschool, and CodeAcademy. – The teaching aspects
only require a couple hours per day as rest of day would be spent on
projects and building things.
Our goal is to build startups locally, or encourage the startup
here, and bring companies like Twitter and Foursquare to the Miami
by building talent that could potentially live here but work remotely
big firm elsewhere.
If you know any one who’d be a good match or who would like to sponsor
please let me know.
