Today I gave a talk to a packed NYC.rb about crafting a Ruby-on-Rails course for developers. I’m working on a blog post about classroom education, but in the meantime, here’re a few links.

The Open-Source Curriculum @ https://github.com/generalassembly/ga-ruby-on-rails-for-devs

Slides from the Presentation on SlideShare

Demo Stashboards, Students’ Projects

https://github.com/jameslin101/stashboard: a clean Stashboard clone

https://github.com/MedText/stashfu: Stashboard as a service

https://github.com/generalassembly/boardroom: Stashboard with voice-over-ip-activated control

I want to thank the audience for attending en-masse, the students who demoed their Stashboard clones, GA and the course sponsors. Some of the students are looking for a Ruby-on-Rails programmer job, reach out to Matthew Owens at GeneralAssemb.ly (mowens[at]generalassemb.ly) if you’re interested and hiring.
