Theodinproject.com is a free website for learning web development and includes tracks for Ruby and Rails. We're going to be meeting online starting this next Sunday and diving into the Rails course.
The curriculum jumps around a host of free resources like the Hartl book and Jumpstart labs, and more. The advantage of group learning is you'll be able to use the rest of us for questions, inspiration, guidance, etc... Folks of all skills levels are welcome, but we'll be starting from scratch.
Each week we'll go over the last weeks assignments and synch up. This first week we'll go over questions, installation, and look at what's on the plate for next week.
This is going to be a lot of fun, so come along.
There is no sign-up, everything is free, get an account on the site, follow the study-groups link on theodinproject.com
If you have any questions, you can ask right here or find me on the site.

Very cool. I just signed up. I want to get better at the back end, because right now my life is just modifying WordPress themes. I’ve been paying for Team Treehouse, and I like it – but the most important thing is NOT the core lessons in my opinion – it’s the projects.
I really like how you’ve structured each course to show “What You’ll Build”, which definitely makes each course more appealing.
The link to the Google hangout is now up at http://www.theodinproject.com/studygroup, under the Rails Track tab.
