P2PU – World of Webcraft
I also applied for, and was accepted into, the Introduction to Ruby and Rails course. Longtime readers of this blog might remember that I have dabbled in Rails before, and had an initially favorable impression. But like any skill, you must use your knowledge or it quickly fades away. I’m basically back to square one with Ruby/Rails due to not having used it in the past year, so I’m looking forward to the added impetus of a class to get me to learn it.
Given that the vast majority of my programming has been on desktop / mobile client applications, I am excited to learn some web programming languages and techniques. Technology changes quickly, and I can all but guarantee my expertise in Java Swing is not going to count for much in a few years.
I’ll be sure to write about my impressions as I go through the course; in the meantime, I urge you to sign up for these courses before they fill up.
