Berkeley Course: Learn Agile Development With Ruby On Rails, Github, Cucumber, RSpec, SimpleCov, Pivotal Tracker, and Heroku!!!

I can hardly contain my excitement right now!!! Yesterday, NatashaTheRobot reader Manoj left a comment on my post to check out the Berkeley Software Engineering for Software as a Service course. At first, I was put off by the title of this course, but as I looked deeper into it this morning, it turned out to be exactly what I was looking for! I’ve been learning Ruby on my own for the past month, and the biggest thing I’m learning is that there is a lot more to learn…


I wanted to move on to Ruby on Rails right away, but there is a lot for me to learn about what a framework is as a start. I’m currently playing around with Sinatra, a really lightweight Ruby framework, and hope to move on to Ruby on Rails.

I’ve also been checking out some Ruby developer job postings to see what I need to learn if I wanted to work as a developer, and in one listing, you had to solve a problem using Rspec in order to apply. I looked around to see what Rspec is, but found it a bit confusing. That is why I’m so excited to see this Berkeley course that teaches you the full agile development cycle.

Anyway, check out the video introduction for this course from the professors and join me if you’re interested 🙂
