Launching g|school - a 6 month intensive Ruby on Rails Training course

Hello Working with Rails community!

Denver based entrepreneurial epicenter,Galvanize, is launching g|School in Jaunuary 2013!

The gSchool program is based on a proven model developed by Jumpstart Lab, in partnership with LivingSocial, that saw 100 percent employment for graduating students. Other options range from online learning programs to four-year computer science degrees. However, these programs do not address the industry demand for hiring developers that are qualified to work in a high- performance, large scale, development team. gSchool’s unique model fills this gap in software development education offerings.

“gSchool delivers an education unlike any other in the industry. We empower students to be in control of their careers and set them on a path of success immediately after graduation,” said Jeff Casimir, co-founder of Jumpstart Lab and program director for gSchool. “The in-depth curriculum mirrors real-world scenarios, ensuring graduates have the experience to build advanced applications that go beyond the ability of many developers that are years into their career.”

The inaugural gSchool session will start in Denver in January 2013. The program will develop students’ core competencies necessary to building applications; using technologies such as Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, and HTML5. Projects include a multi-tenant storefront, a data processing/mining system, integrations with Github, Twitter and Facebook, a project to support charity and an independent mastery project. The gSchool program tuition is $20,000 per person, with the price including the six-month, five days/week program, a new Macbook, and a desk membership in the Galvanize facility. In addition, gSchool provides graduates with a platform to connect with startups and entrepreneurs through the larger Galvanize community.

We are searching for candidates who would like to take their Ruby skills to the next level - check it out and make sure you apply by December 3rd when our applications close.
