Ruby on Rails is an open-source web framework that's optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. All the cool kids are using it. Ruby on Rails jobs are extremely in demand and pay an average of $73,200 to $112,000.
If you do not know how to program, please take my Intro to Ruby course first and I will give you a 20% discount on this course after. Otherwise, this course moves pretty fast, so if you better be up for the challenge and ready to do a lot of reading and meet with me often and potentially even take this course again (free - I let alumni audit classes pretty openly).
