Rails Training in South East Michigan


The South East Michigan Ruby U. Group is hosting a free two day Ruby
on Rails training course on Saturday March 11 and Saturday, March 25.

No previous Ruby experience is necessary; however, some previous
development experience is recommended. Starting from nothing we will
cover the basics of the Ruby language and then create a web
calendaring application over the course of two days. In the process
there will be plenty of examples and hands-on assistance to get you
started with Rails.

It is BYOL (bring your own laptop). If you do not have a laptop, you
can still sign up, but please let us know so we can try to make
arrangements to accomodate you.

Enrollment is limited, so if you’re interested, please sign up using
