We launched Hashrocket University in 2010 at Railsconf and had a tremendous first class. The feedback we received from the attendees afterward was that they got a lot out of Hashrocket University but the would have benefitted from three things, a venue that was more development friendly, a higher instructor to attendee ratio and a longer format that allowed for more time pairing.
This year we are excited to be hosting the Spring 2011 Hashrocket University at our headquarters in Jacksonville Beach, FL. This will allow us to host the class on our home turf with first class development equipment and surroundings. This also allowed us to raise the instructor to student ratio to 2 to 1. Each pair will have their own Rocketeer tailoring the instruction to the areas they want to get better at. We have expanded the format from one day to two days and modified the course content to focus primarily on pairing with attendees.
The class will be limited to 18 attendees. It includes two nights of beach front hotel accommodations, a welcome reception Friday night, breakfast and lunch both days, and two days of pairing working with veteran Rocketeers. Plus you'll get a sweet t-shirt and other cool swag. If you have any questions drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can book tickets at the official Hashrocket University site.
