Learn the basics of coding with the "One Month Rails" course

Raise your hand if you’ve ever tried to teach yourself how to code.

But Anton ... you're a business dude, why the hell would you want to learn how to code?

Learning the basics of coding teaches you new analytical skills and new ways to think of solutions to problems.

I tried out a couple different online guides out there, but they all lead me to the same point.

They taught me about strings and loops and blah blah blah, but I didn't feel like I actually learned anything valuable.

Mattan Griffel went through the same thing and decided he would take things into his own hands and teach himself how to code in one of the most popular programming frameworks, Ruby on Rails.

Well, he was able to teach himself AND build a basic web app, in less than a month.

He then took his method and developed “One Month Rails”, a course which has taught 1,000+ people the basics of Ruby on Rails.

Just check out some of the websites his students have made:

Student's Site #1

Someone built a wedding planning service.

Student's Site #2

Someone built this site to help college students pick their major.

Who is “One Month Rails” for?

  • Total beginners (really, you don’t need any prior knowledge)
  • People who want to gain analytical skills by learning how to code

If you already know a good amount about programming, this isn't for you. This is for noobs like me :-)

What you get:

  • Exactly how Mattan learned to code in Ruby on Rails in less than one month with no experience
  • Hours of easy to digest video content
  • Hands-on exercises
  • Code samples
  • Resources on where to go after you’ve learned the basics

Here’s what one of more than a thousand happy students had to say:

It is true, I learnt to build a website from ground up and have it live in less than... 2 days (after watching all the videos)! Mattan is unique in the sense that he came from a non-programming background, and that's how he grasp our true beginner's learning curve. It helps a lot.

Mattan regularly sells his course for $40.

For the next 5 days only, you can grab the course from us for only $20 (that's 50% off!)
