Big Nerd Ranch today announced Ruby on Rails Bootcamp for February 12-16, 2007. Ruby on Rails, with its robust framework and lack of compile cycle, is ideally suited for a spectrum of needs; from start-ups, to government agencies, to full-scale enterprises all requiring either internal or client-facing Web applications. Whether the student is a novice seeking a head-start in one of the hottest development languages in the industry, or a master developer seeking to expand her repertoire, Ruby on Rails is the perfect solution for developers, web designers and project managers charged with developing a sophisticated and scaleable Web-based application. The bootcamp is a five-day, exhaustive examination of the key aspects of Ruby development on the Rails framework necessary to producing master-level developers. The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of US$3,500 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and transportation to and from the Atlanta airport.
