Ruby on Rails Training

Ruby on Rails was new to me but Nic made our introduction accessible and enjoyable. I'm interested in developing my own skills further and feel confident I can go forth and do that. We are all keen to incorporate it into our working practices to improve our platform.

Excellent content, professionally delivered by someone who clearly knows his subject and loves what he does. Real-life examples and simple explanations in the right order made my first introduction to Ruby on Rails go very smoothly. I feel like I've got a very clear understanding of the basic concepts - and am inspired to start writing my own first app!
