Do you need to start learning Ruby on Rails? In this morning tutorial the Envy Labs team will lead you through all five labs of their Rails for Zombies course. Unlike other tutorials, all you need to start coding Rails is a laptop with Wi-Fi and a modern browser. All coding will be done through our web application, and there will be plenty of lab assistants to help you if you get stuck along the way. Once you’ve joined the undead and finished the corpse, Michael Hartl will be running the afternoon session of this day long Intro to Rails tutorial, which you are highly encouraged to enroll.
Note: This will mostly be the same content you can access online at railsforzombies.org. However, nothing beats the experience of a live presenter and having live help if you get stuck on a lab.
**Thank you for registering for Rails for Zombies! All you’ll need to attend the course is a working laptop with wifi, and a browser which isn’t Internet Explorer (also your iPad won’t be good enough, sorry). Before you come to the course we recommend you play through http://www.tryruby.org/. It’s an in-browser Ruby tutorial.
See you at RailsConf!
Gregg Pollack works at Envy Labs, where he produces a podcast, creates educational screencasts, and develops websites with Rails. He also runs the Ruby Hero Awards, organizes the Orlando Ruby Users Group, and is also sometimes known as the Ruby on Rails guy in the “Rails vs” commercials or the “C” in MVC.
Eric is a Ruby developer but can sometimes get distracted by shiny things, like node.js or Cocoa Touch. He is excited by finding pragmatic solutions to hard problems, and turning those problems into compelling products. Catch him in a coffee shop and he would be just as willing to engage in a discussion of literature as he would the benefits of TDD.
