Got a developer on your gift-giving list? Give ‘em a gift that lasts well after the holiday decorations have come down—the gift of practical can-do know-how. Our online, self-paced training courses make for awesome gifts and we’ll even do the wrapping for you.

It’s quick and easy to gift our courses. Just head on over to our course catalog, toss an online course or two into your cart, and enter the name and e-mail of the person to whom you’re gifting the course.

Once the order is placed, our Ruby-powered elves will send your special developer an e-mail with instructions for accessing their online course(s). It’s a great way for you to play secret Santa, or you can follow-up with a cheery note. And as a bonus, your developer automatically gets alumni status which means they’ll save 25% on their next course. As they say, it’s a gift that keeps on giving!

Need help picking a course? No problem. If your developer is planning to make a transition to Ruby in the new year, he’ll love getting up to speed quickly in the Ruby Programming course. Or help take her existing Ruby skills up a notch with Mastering Ruby Blocks & Iterators. Is he dreaming of developing a web app? If so, he’ll go from idea to deployment and beyond with Ruby on Rails: Level I and Ruby on Rails: Level II. Or if you want to splurge a little while taking advantage of combo discounts, put her on a continuous learning path with two or more courses!

Hope you find these ideas helpful when loading up your sleigh this season.

Merry Christmas to all!
