We put the Bali into work/life balance.
Live a great lifestyle that augments the bootcamp experience.
We're a tech bootcamp. We run 9-week courses. In Bali, and other amazing places. For amazing people from all around the world.
And we think your learning experience should be awesome, fulfilling and life-changing - not gruelling. We know that you learn best when you're happy and relaxed. So we focus on keeping you that way. Ruby on the Beach really is a better way to learn.
We help you develop skills for your next career - as developer, digital nomad or web entrepreneur - skills you'd never believe you could master in such a short time.
Our special sauce? Three super experienced devs, and maximum 12 students. That's by far the best instructor/student ratio we know of. It allows you to maintain work/life balance, and still learn more than in a bootcamp that demands much longer hours (and provides far fewer opportunities to surf, climb volcanoes or just chill in one of the planet's most beautiful places).
Don't just change your skillset: change your life.
We've helped people from lawyers to entrepreneurs to rock guitarists to graphic artists - with or without experience coding - to be successful coders, junior developers and digital creators.
San Diego-based Stephanie writes for Forbes. Her company, Chic-Ceo, advises women entrepreneurs. When she decided entrepreneurs need to code, she came to Ruby on the Beach. Now she's building great things.
Champion gamer Dan was travelling in Latin America when he came across Ruby on the Beach, and after getting accepted, he booked his flight to Bali. For Dan, the potential in digital nomadism was a draw that matched his travelling life.
What do you do when you finish your MA in European History? Code! Mancunian Jenny brought basic code experience, and used Ruby on the Beach to make the big jump to coder. Jen joined a dev team in Holland after the course.
Ambitious, smart, and a natural leader, Matt was leading the corporate life, but wanted to break out, to build the health tracking apps he wanted. Matt combined an extensive trek through Asia with bootcamp, and now he's coding on the road.
It turned out that Netherlander Moniek's law degree got her a good job, but not one that satisfied her desire to make things. Moniek found out that the basic online Rails course she'd taken had a lot of knowledge holes in it. Now she's on a great footing.
Jakartan Kintan met us as she was graduating from a marketing degree. As she put it, "I could see - everything is going web. So why not know web?". Good impulse. Kintan joined a dev team as a junior a couple of days after finishing Ruby on the Beach.
Brooklyn-based serial entrepreneur Andrew had built web business, but always had to bring in a tech partner. Our bootcamp would cost what 3 weeks burn for his next tech partner would. He took the plunge, and built his next app himself.
Ruby on the Beach has a special, intensive program for those who want to learn to code, and build new businesses around code they create.
