RL has been conducting online Ruby programming courses that has had over 5350 participants spread across 140+ countries. This has been possible due to the extensive support provided by the mentors and assistant teachers of these courses. RL strives hard to improve the methodology and course content based on the extensive and positive feedback we receive. Thanks to YOU, people like Fabio Akita and companies like Locaweb who make this possible.

Update on 30th Nov. 2008: The next batch will start in February / March. Wait for the announcement.

You kept asking for it and so here it is – the new short, intensive, online course that helps you create UI’s using FXRuby and with YAML and ActiveRecord (with Migrations) helps you access a database.
