Attendee prerequisites for this tutorial are listed below.
This course is for Rails beginners. We will start from the ground up, and learn the basics of building Rails 3 applications in five sections:
We have developed an application that lets you try coding in Rails with only your browser, so all you’ll need to bring is a laptop with Wifi.
Thank you for registering for Intro to Rails (AKA. 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.

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.
Carlos (Caike) Souza is currently a developer at Envylabs, where he spends his time between client projects and the development of CodeSchool.com, an interactive learning platform of web technologies. When not programming, he can be found climbing walls or playing bass with his band.
Jason is a designer, husband, and father. He’s Design Lead at Envy Labs, a leading web development firm in Orlando, FL, edits Branding Matters a popular blog on branding and design, and is Chief Brewmeister at Brewwd combining great design with great beer. He’s also a self-proclaimed craft beer snob and a borderline crazy UNC Tarheel fan.
Nick is a Rails convert-in-training and WordPress aficionado. He splits time between design and front-end development, ensuring a successful bridge to functionality. Pixels and proportions are his leading causes of lost sleep, followed closely by Dr. Pepper intake.
