Zack Shapiro is a developer for TaskRabbit, and scratched his own itch with Silencer. His posts about learning to code have gained massive traction on Hacker News and around the Internet.
In ‘From Rails Zero to Hero,’ he will take you from knowing nothing about programming to building your first simple Rails application. By building each piece together, you will come to understand how to build the applications that, until now, have just existed in your head! I’ll walk you through different data types, how to send and receive information, how to construct forms, how to write helpful functions that get you the information you need to create web apps!
In this class, we’ll cover how to set up a Rails dev environment on your Mac and how to spin up your first application. We’ll also cover the Model, View, Controller paradigm for writing code and start building the skills together to be confident coders without getting lost in the millions of articles that attempt to teach you “how to code.” We’ll also talk about how to be a good beginner, not get ahead of yourself and be confident as you hone your craft.
