Preparing the Core Ruby course participants for the web
RubyLearning.org has announced a free, online course on topics that hopefully will help those that have some knowledge of Ruby programming to get started with web programming - call it "Programming for the Web with Ruby". This does not cover Ruby on Rails.
The course material is almost ready and I am looking for help from you to add / subtract / modify the topics and material for this course. We also require many problems/solutions for the course participants.
The course is scheduled for 20th Feb. 2012 and we would have 3-4 mentors helping out the participants during the course.
Can you help?
