Well House Consultants offer training courses in a variety of Open Source programming languages. Public courses will be run at our headquarters in Melksham, Wiltshire. Courses tailored to suit individual client needs can be run at your site. Typically we have good availability if you book three months in advance; occasionally we have short notice availability too, so please do ask!
Courses are all written by ourselves, and lead by our own tutor. We recommend that you limit courses to fifteen delegates so that the tutor has plenty of time to answer any questions that arise, and provide personal support during practical sessions.
Ruby is a modern, object oriented scripting language
which takes a pragramtic
or practical approach to coding rather than
a theoretical one. You'll find it has much of the richness of Perl (from which
it inherits many features), and - when used as "Ruby on Rails" - all the
easy integration for web use that PHP provides. But it can do much, much
more than that too.
At Well House Consultants
, we offer:
• a 5 day
Learning to Program in Ruby course
for delegates who are new
to computer programming, to give them a grounding in the
fundamentals of programming and how they're applied to Ruby.
• a 4 day
public Ruby course
for delegates who are already experienced
programmers in another language, to give them a good grounding on
the fundamentals of Ruby.
• a 1 day
public Regular Expression course
for delegates who are already
familiar with Ruby, but want to learn more about Regular Expressions
and how they're used
If you've a group of three or more delegates who wish to learn Ruby
at the same time, a Specially Run Courses
course can be arranged, and for larger groups we
can also run a Private Courses
course at your offices. Such courses are tailored to
meet your requirements - for example, we are able to provide a private
course for newcomers to programming, and we can extend the coverage of
topics such as Rails beyond that on the public course. Please contact us
to discuss the detail of what you need.
Ruby was written Yukihiro Matsumoto ("Matz"), and he remains very much involved
with the language. You can read about him and link to downloads from
