Code Academy

March 22, 2012

Well, it's official: In April, I'm leaving my job as a trial lawyer to work full-time on developing web applications with the Spring 2012 development class at Code Academy.

Code Academy is an 11 week course that teaches the basics of web development using Ruby on Rails.

I've been teaching myself Rails for the past year or so. I've made a lot of progress, but I've found it difficult to get the the next level without any real support. I think Code Academy is the perfect opportunity for me to continue learning, build my ideas, and get to know all of the awesome people in the Chicago development community. I can't wait to get started!
