today was a great day! Today was the first day of the second edition of the course about the basics of web development I’m teaching at Humboldt University Berlin. I had a great deal of fun and am already looking forward to next week.
Anyhow, the course now has its own blog where I share presentations, homework etc. The course is held in German only, so the material is only German as well. The course is aimed at total beginners (e.g. minimum requirement: “You should know how to use a computer.”). When looking through the material please keep in mind that it is not made for self-study – it is made to be presented. Also it is for real beginners and therefore sometimes makes abstractions/simplifications for the sake of productivity.
So without further ado, enjoy the blog: webanwendungsentwicklung.wordpress.com
It’s the well known web application introduction, this time without the Ruby introduction as the Ruby Monsters already did this! This time it also has a Bentobox exercise, so enjoy!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the workshop and that the slides help you with your learning
Oh, and a link to the cheat sheet which I mentioned.
during the last week I spent a large amount of time creating a Cheat Sheet for Rails beginners! So, here it is: http://pragtob.github.io/rails-beginner-cheatsheet/
I originally started creating this cheat sheet for my awesome Rails Girls Berlin project group. But I figured and hoped that a lot more people would be interested in this
So far this cheat sheet covers the following aspects:
- Command line basics
- Ruby basics including (Numbers, Strings, Arrays, Hashes)
- Rails basics including a description of the folders and commonly used commands (like starting the server)
- Tips about using an editor
- Information about where to get help
So also feel free to check out the repository and especially the open issues – I would love feedback on many of them! And contributions are also very welcome!
Cheers, hope it helps you + keep on learning,
So I just gave a lightning talk about shoes. Here are the slides for talk, it was (mostly) a stripped down version of an introduction talk to shoes, which I gave ate Ruby User Group Berlin.
So here are the slides:
Cheers and thanks for wrov_love.rb – it was a cool conference!
So here are the slides from my talks from the Rails Girls Berlin workshop on Saturday, in their chronological order:
Introduction to web applications (the one with the map)
I love programming
The slides are Creative Commons Attribution license – so feel free to share and modify them but say where you got them from
And as a little bonus I was allowed to post the beautiful Rails Model View Controller comic drawn by Anja of our Ruby Monsters project group – the comic is Crative Commons as well if I understood her right!
just a quick post: I just created a page containing many of the resources I stumbled upon while learning about programming, software engineering, web development, that I found extremely useful. Most of them are free so go and check the resources section out!
This list is also a good indicator of what I might write reviews about in the future.
I hereby want to thank each and every author of the referenced material for their contributions. This is my way of saying thank you, I hope that through my blog some more people find those great resources. I also hope that I can help all the people who are looking for resources in order to learn about Ruby, Rails, web development or any other stuff.
Also if you feel like there are any good resources in the form of guides or tutorials missing please let me know (via comments or ways described in the About section) . I would enjoy this and feel free to share this if you think someone might have use for it.
So once again: Go and check out the Resources section (or simply click on the link on the top right!).
I hope that this may be of use to you.
