I have had the chance to visit the classes at Code Academy in Chicago, I can say that these students are learning way more than I ever expected.

No they will not be software craftsman in 12 weeks, but they will know how to take their own idea and make it into a Rails app. Pretty powerful stuff for not knowing how code on Day 1.

"Most of the little tricks and crap I've learned over the years have been through trial and error, and working on many different projects."
