Thanks to everyone who participated in my Ruby Workshop survey. Although I didn’t get a tonne of responses, the ones I did get formed some distinct patterns, so I got what I needed.
In general, you prefer weekends or don’t care, so weekend it is.
You distinctly prefer November, with a secondary preference of January, so we’ll schedule it that way.
No preferences emerged for location, so I’ll just see what’s available/comfortable/cheap. ;-) (One write in for Dubai/Muscat… sorry, but probably not)
You really don’t like “Mostly lecture”, and lean strongly toward a mix of lecture and interactive work-along (which is what we’ve always done, good to know).
And last but not least, you want the straight up Ruby on Rails for Real workshop most of all, followed by the Rails for iOS Developers, so that will be what we schedule for November and January. A reasonable number of people are wanting the Intro to Ruby as well, and I am certain that Ladies Learning Code will be running that workshop again soon as well, so keep an eye out for that. Oh, and I had one “write in” for RubyMotion. That’s on my radar for next year.
Thanks again. I’ll post a schedule as soon as I’ve firmed up the dates. If you are not already on my mailing list, please do signup, and you’ll be the first to hear as well as get special, list only, discount codes for workshops.
