In a booming tech industry, having the skills to handle both design and functionality is what makes a developer stand out.

In this 60-hour back-end intensive, you'll take your knowledge of web technologies like HTML and CSS even further by quickly creating beautiful apps that actually work. From displaying pop-up messages to storing data in a database, you'll learn to handle the creation of software from start to finish, including how to launch your application live on the web for anyone to use.

The first part of the course teaches you how to leverage the power and speed of Ruby on Rails, and you’ll quickly see why big companies like Shopify, Groupon, Twitter, and Github use it to build their services. You’ll then learn the fundamentals of programming using the Ruby language without Rails to solidify your understanding of how the back-end of software works.

The final sessions of the class will be focused on mastering Model-View-Controller architecture so that you can decide for yourself whether you want to specialize in creating complex backend systems, or designing professional applications that simply work.

While experience with Ruby on Rails is not necessary for this course, it is recommended that you have at least some exposure to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We can provide you with a computer during class, but it is preferred that you bring your own so that you can continue working at home.

This Ruby on Rails bootcamp is held at our coding school in Midtown, located at 185 Madison Avenue, New York, NY.
