Teaching Rails at Great Works

I've started teaching Ruby on Rails at Great Works and I'm very excited about it! It's a three evening course given to a small group of up to 10 people. We use a lot of hands on excercise rather than lecturing and the goal is to build a small Rails application. The course participants are designers rather than programmers so we needed to lay down some object orientation and programming basics before we could take on Rails. Despite of this obstacle we were able to make a lot of progress by using Locomotive for installation and scaffolding for UI generation. You can check out the slides here.

I genuinely enjoy teaching and am now looking for more opportunities to help companies learn and get started with Rails quickly. Get in touch if this sounds interesting.
