Anyone have any experience with One Month Rails? I'd love to hear how well it actually worked. I've been thinking about doing it for a while now.

If you want to learn Rails, I wrote a post that might be helpful too - http://zackshapiro.com/post/31672964808/want-to-learn-rails-start-here

The team behind this app is incredible! I'm excited how One Month Rails and One Month for other programming languages works out.

What do you say @nbashaw - how would you recommend Railin' up?
Nathan Bashaw
Everyone learns differently, but I think one month rails is pretty sweet for those who don't want to drop a lot of cash but want a bit more than what just blog posts or books can offer. That said, nothing beats having a classroom experience with a real instructor. If you're really serious about learning to code I'd definitely recommend checking out a class at GA or elsewhere. GA offers a course in back-end web development that I have heard a lot of great things about, but obviously I'm biased ;) https://generalassemb.ly/education/back-end-web-development

@blakeir I completed OMR about a month ago and am currently working on building my first Rails app. I think OMR is a good starter, but definitely won't make you a "rockstar" by any stretch of the imagination (to be fair I'm pretty sure that's not their goal) . What I've been doing is bundling it with Teamtreehouse, Stackoverflow, and just tinkering on a few projects. The latter probably being the most useful way to pick up any skill. Also checkout http://prework.flatironschool.com/#the-web and good luck on your journey!

@blakeir I'm a fan ;) Actually I'm happy to answer any questions you guys might have. @AdrianGrant you're right that we're not trying to make people developer rockstars. It IS all online and so it's not going to be as intensive or effective as an in-person, 3 month program. But we definitely think there's a lot of room to improve and are always trying to make it better. We're also big fans of Thinkful, CodeSchool and Treehouse for online code learning, and Flatiron School, and General Assembly for in-person stuff.

Ahh, I like that it's aimed at the total beginner. Whenever I'm trying to help someone learn I always forget the little details that make it painful to get started. Then I get frustrated because they don't get it/I'm a bad teacher. I'll just point them here. :)

@nbashaw I actually prefer online learning to in-person classes for programming. In person, the whole class can only move as quickly as the slowest student, which is frustrating. Whereas online everyone can move at their own pace.

Welcome to my One Month Rails site!

This is an example of the kind of site you'll learn how to build during One Month Rails. Users can sign up, upload images, add stories, or do whatever you want them to.
