This is the course I wish I had.

Seven years ago, I was a product manager in a web development team at a funded startup. We quickly spent a large portion of our budget building our web technology. Spending so much limited our ability to grow in the long run and we still didn’t get the product that we envisioned in our heads. I came out of that experience realizing that I needed to learn to code: I saw it as one of the most valuable skills of the 21st century, as we all become more dependent on programmers – the people who are building the world around us.

Since then I’ve had success as a web developer building technology for Coca-Cola, Edison Nation, Toyota, Newell Rubbermaid, First Data, Bennigan’s, and Getaround. I’m a self-taught programmer and after learning how to code online, I was able to get great job offers from multiple companies.

But learning to code wasn’t easy – in fact there are tons of books, tutorials, and videos out there and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. I was tired of wading through hundreds of resources and still not feeling like a confident web developer. So I ended up creating my own study plan – one that I knew would work. That’s why I created this course – it’s the course I wish I had when I was learning.

Becoming job-ready should be straightforward and the world needs more developers right now. You’re getting a step-by-step guide, including things I learned on the job, boiled down into an all-in-one training course that shows you exactly what to do to get hired or build your own startup.

There’s no better time to be a coder.

Our friends at Code.org pretty much summed it up.

What our students are saying.

“I cannot stress enough how well organized your course is. You are a great teacher I can’t wait to learn more from you. Would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about learning web development in a digestable manner.” – Gary Calhoun

“I have seen other courses on web development but have to say what Rob has prepared in this course blows everything else away. The patience he shows in explaining each individual part that makes the applications work is amazing; his instruction is clear and his voice is easy on the ears which has been a big let-down in other courses I have followed.” – Mark Moran

“The course content was really helpful for building complete real web applications including database integration/jQuery/HTML/CSS/JS. This is a complete one stop learning course for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced web developers. It’s really worth it to spend the small amount and learn so much in a complete course. I highly recommend going through this bootcamp to get maximum knowledge.” – Min Khati, Rails and Javascript Developer

“Before taking this course I had learned Ruby and Rails in parts from some sources and didn’t really have the courage to move full on. Thanks to Rob for this amazing course which may be arguably one of the best course experiences out there. He is not only knowledgeable but generous with his explanations and will never hurry you; and makes you work in a meaningful way. Rob is not just thorough in subject matter but has a great sense of humor! I cannot applaud enough for his responsiveness on the discussion forum. If you are remotely interested in learning web development then look no further. You will be glad you took this course. You’d be silly not to jump in and start this course!” – PJ Joshi, Web Developer
