How to Teach Yourself to Code

, CEO, One Month Rails

If you have an idea but no technical co-founder, this class is for you. Demand for freelance developers has skyrocketed to unprecedented levels, but you can teach yourself to code prototypes quickly in a few weeks. In this class, Mattan will show you how he built his first fully-functional app with less than one month's experience coding. We'll cover the best ways to teach yourself (how to actually make it fun) and what key resources you need to know about.
