I'd be curious to hear the rationale behind my downvote.

Is anyone seriously suggesting you can turn a programming illiterate into a rails hire in 8 weeks?

It's very subjective to talk about what a "rails junior" means, but it is very possible for someone (like the students at Code Academy) to learn an immense amount of programming knowledge in a short amount of time (say 12 weeks).
