expert instruction

Brian Hughes, a respected member of the Rails community, experienced Rails developer, and skilled instructor, offers three half-day workshops with all you need to start using Rails to build clean, well-architected web applications.

hands-on advice

Each workshop will be a mix of instruction and hands-on practice. Each will also be followed by an optional, unstructured, hands-on working session with Brian there to assist you (priced separately). Plus recommendations for reading and online resources for Rails.


By the end of the third session, you will be able to create real-world, practical Rails applications.

low cost, money back guarantee

Take all three workshops for only $950, or just come to the first one to see what it's all about, for $350. And get your money back if you're not fully satisfied with the training.


"Outstanding....Ruby on Rails is cutting edge, but it encompasses multiple areas of integration and skill in order to make use of its power and potential. Brian's understanding and clarity make it exciting and accessible! This is a huge value!"
- Charles Conquest, webmaster, Fresh Music

"...You couldn't ask for a better instructor than Brian Hughes. He is awesomely knowledgeable ..." More...
- Cliff Clifford, web developer, The Complete Website

who should attend?

Intermediate to advanced web developers (perl, PHP, Java, Python, ... ) who haven't started using Rails extensively. No previous exposure to Rails is assumed. You will load Rails onto your laptop, if you bring one, during the first class.

While there are no prerequisites for the first workshop, the second and third workshops require you to have attended the previous session(s).

where and when?

Held in the Upper Connecticut River Valley region on the border of New Hampshire and Vermont, these workshops are a rare opportunity for web developers in northern New England to hone their skills without having to travel outside the region.

Imagine: excellent training without all the extra hotel, airfare, or car rental expenses associated with training in a major metropolitan area!
