RubyConf starts tomorrow, and with it being in our hometown of Denver, we’ll most certainly be there! It’s always a great couple of days to catch up with friends and alumni face-to-face. We’re looking forward to celebrating another year of Ruby, and whether you’re able make it to Denver or not this year, we’ve got a couple special deals to share with you.

First, you can save 40% on our comprehensive, online Ruby Programming course. Just use coupon code RubyConf2012 when purchasing your copy within the next week to get in on this limited deal. You'll get unlimited access to the $199 course for only $120!

The format of this online course follows the same style as our popular live Studios: engaging instruction, live coding, and practical hands-on exercises. If you've attended one of our public courses, you'll feel right at home. But since this is a video-based course, you can start taking it immediately and work through it at your own pace. To find out more about this course or get started learning Ruby, check out the introduction video below or watch the free course module on Ruby hashes.

If you want to use Rails more effectively, or you just want to become a better Ruby programmer, then this course is for you! But don't just take our word for it. Here are a few of the reviews from folks who have already completed the course:

"The online Ruby course is simply fantastic. Well worth the money and the best curriculum I've seen yet for learning Ruby." — Martin Graham
"I've been developing Ruby on Rails websites and apps for two years. This course gave me dozens and dozens of 'Ah-ha!' moments with regards to what is actually going on in my Rails apps. My confidence for building new Rails apps and refactoring my existing apps has increased tremendously." — Chip Ashby
"The course is outstanding! The best I've ever taken. Rails is so much less mysterious now that I'm learning Ruby the right way." — Tony Barone
"The course is fantastic. I always thought I learned well from just reading books and coding on my own, but I learned MUCH more from watching the videos and doing the assignments. The two of you were excellent instructors and a lot of fun. I am now much more confident in my abilities and understanding." — C.R. Myers

But wait, as they say, there's more! Our friends over at The Pragmatic Bookshelf are also helping you celebrate Ruby and Rails by offering 40% off select book titles. Now that's a party you won't want to miss! Take advantage of both deals to score all the good Ruby and Rails loot!

Remember, this limited deal expires next Wednesday, November 7, 2012. We hope to see many of you at RubyConf, or online in the Studio!
