Introducing “Learn Rails”

We’re proud to announce the launch of our new Learn Rails course!

What’s New? Ruby on Rails is a popular web framework used by companies like Airbnb, GitHub, Groupon, and Codecademy that makes it easy to build dynamic web apps in a short amount of time. You can use Rails to build apps, websites, games, and more—all in an easy to use and popular framework.

When building Learn Rails, we had a few basic concepts in mind. We wanted the course to be accessible, quick to complete, and fun to do. We decided to shorten the Learn Rails course time and created 12 hands-on projects that users can work on throughout the course. Coding is exciting, and the new Learn Rails format makes it easy to grab on to concepts and apply them in useful projects.

Why Learn Rails? You might notice that Learn Rails is our second Rails course on Codecademy. We listened carefully to the response from students after our first course—Make a Rails App. Students from our in-person Codecademy Labs classes felt they needed more practice before they could create a Rails app on their own. We responded by creating a new course, Learn Rails, to give all of our learners the skills they need to feel confident in coding custom Rails apps.

At Codecademy, we try to learn as much as possible about how learners use our product, and how we can improve. We’re dedicated to our “learn by doing” experience, helping users feel rooted in what they learn, and confident in being able to build their own real-world Rails apps.

We can’t wait to see what you create with Learn Rails!

Happy coding! -Bana, Content at Codecademy
