As mentioned on the Ruby on Rails weblog earlier today, EastMedia is hosting a 3-Day Ruby and Ruby on Rails Training course in London. PLANET ARGON was invited to send one of our developers to London as one of the three instructors. We’re excited to announce that Jeremy Voorhis, Lead Architect at PLANET ARGON, will be joining David Black and Matt Pelletier in London as an instructor.

University of East London – Docklands Campus — May 5 – 7 — £1200.00 GBP

A three-day training course which offers a thorough introduction to Ruby and the Ruby on Rails web application framework. Organized by Smartlab/Volks Lab and EastMedia, this course will provide web developers, product managers and entrepeneurs with a solid foundation for understanding the concepts, tools, and real-world tips needed to build robust, scalable, full-featured web applications using Ruby on Rails.

Workshop for Good in Washington, DC

Amy Hoy, Ezra Zygmuntowicz and Jeff Casimir are putting together a unique Rails workshop May 20th and 21st in Washington, DC. The two-day workshop is geared toward beginning and intermediate developers. The cool part of the workshop is that the speakers aren’t taking any pay: 100% of the proceeds are going to benefit the César Chávez Public Charter School where Jeff teaches. They are raising funds to improve technology access and usage throughout the school.

PLANET ARGON loves the concept and has donated three of our Level 1 hosting packages as door prizes for the event. They are still seeking more sponsors for the events and if you haven’t purchased your seat yet… you better hurry!
