Rails Girls Learning Tools: Update
Nearly a year passed since our last Rails Girls workshop in Hamburg and the publication of my commented link list of rails girls learning tools. The market of online learning tools expanded, so for this year’s workshop im Hamburg on 16th/17th of August, it’s time for a little update!
For everybody prefering German as a learning language, it’s good news that the Hanno-Plassner-Institut started a little web-university called openHPI offering Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) specialized in programming-related topics in german and english for free. There is for example an introduction to web technologies Einführung in die Web-Technologien, a course that Rails Girl Nina completed and recommended for you (it’s officially over, but you can do it in the archive mode).
At a more commercial level, there is this new online coding school called Treehouse offering to learn ruby on rails for 25 Dollars a month. I personally didn’t try it out yet, but at least they seem to have a lot of video lessons with relevant topics.
It’s not so new, but if you like to get more practice with your terminal – which is useful for every programming stuff you do -, I’d like to recommend you the The Command Line Crash Course.
For those who want even more ruby learning material, check out iwanttolearnruby.com or the really extensive ruby and rails resources list from Tobi, both have a lot of recources that I didn’t cover now or in my previous rails learning link list article.
