More Success from our Second InstallFest

Last night kicked off May's InstallFest, with 18 new Railers excited to get going! Once again, we threw them in to the deep end, getting them set-up and coding!

All of our new Railers, followed the first step-by-step article, and had their very own blog built with Ruby on Rails, and deployed to Heroku by the end of the evening. Check out some of our photos on our Facebook gallery.

Stay tuned, our Railers will be adding all sorts of awesome features at Evening Two of our InstallFest!

Here is what they had to say after the first evening:

“Love it so far. A steady pace, friendly people and knowledgable instructors that don’t make you feel like an idiot when you ask a question.” - Des Penny

“Great idea! Shows you where to start with Ruby and takes the complexity out of the daunting first step. Great work reInteractive team!” - Naveen Danda

“Excellent idea, really handy to get help getting set up with installation and deployment to Heroku.” - Mary Nolan

“I really enjoyed it. It was great to get back into a development environment and be learning something new.” - Jonno Witts

“Great experience, even though I had previous RoR experience. Highly recommended!” - Jurgens Smit
