A bootcamp in the cloud
intensive, effective, flexible.
Many people would love to join a bootcamp, but don’t. For two reasons: First, scheduling. Even a short bootcamp of eight weeks is really hard to fit into the lives that most people lead. Right?
Second, there’s the cost. And that’s about the huge sums most bootcamps expect you to come up with before you’re even sure a bootcamp will work for you.
We hear you.
We’re known for our pioneering destination bootcamps in Bali, Thailand, and Ecuador. Now we’ve taken the bootcamp to a new destination: the Cloud.
Instead of piling into a classroom to learn curriculum basics, we’re shifting the non-project focused part of the program to one-on-one, instructor-led online learning. It reduces your costs, makes it easier on your schedule, and you get a learning experience even more focused and effective than a bootcamp.
We’re still fabulous. Fabulous and better.
And you still make your friends insanely jealous by going to our fabulous bootcamp.
Our program still incorporates our amazing destination bootcamp, in a beautiful villa at a fabulous location. It’s still a month of pure joyful coding, working on projects from day one, projects that will launch you to another level.
integrated. incremental. incredible.
The great strength of bootcamps isn’t classroom work. It’s the projects that define your first serious steps into code.
So our bootcamp phase is 100% project focused.
you’ve got the power.
We give each student the power to make the course her own. One size doesn’t fit all: no two bootcamp students need the exact same level of instruction, on the exact same subjects, delivered on the same day, in the same way.
Everything has its strengths. No size fits all.
You design your course as you go, starting from an initial week where we evaluate your progress and comfort level together. Based on how you’re doing, you can add or reduce instructor hours, focus more on projects or exercises – whatever’s best for you. Throughout the program.
If you find you need more help, you can call on instructors for extra one-on-one instruction any time during class hours.
no (money) worries.
During the bootcamp and instruction phases, you pay as you go, on a bi-weekly basis. If it came to the worst during the initial phase, you could take a break, and not have to worry about losing anything. Since billing is per instructor hour, you’d just carry those credits forward.
Starting from a base cost, and set hours, instructors are available as mentors, for code reviews, or to explore new directions beyond the curriculum.
We think this is what every bootcamp should be. We’re really excited – let’s talk.
What happens after you attend ruby on the beach?
Ruby on the Beach is, always has been, and always will be for people who want to write their own ticket. A cubicle is a perfectly fine outcome, and so is a nomadic life, coding and travelling. Or creating your own startup, managing teams effectively with the coding abilities you’ve developed. Or expanding your current business to include what you took away from what we helped you learn. Really, it’s up to you – and it’s up to us to help make that happen.

Our tech bootcamp is no cookie cutter experience. Everything we focus on contributes to learning more, as part of a meaningful, richer experience. And that's why Ruby on the Beach is a life-changing, not just a career-changing event.
To make that happen, we offer smaller classes than other bootcamps; more and better qualified instructors per student; and the right combination of intensity and a super chill environment customized to promote learning and eliminate burnout. And it happens in gorgeous well appointed villas in some of the world's nicest places including Costa Rica, and Bali, Indonesia, our current program location.
Our bootcamp is for ambitious, intelligent people looking for transformation. Our participants work with us to reach their goals as part of that search. And more than anything else, we commit to helping our participants learn to learn in the tech milieu, so whatever changes tech brings, they’re ready to adapt.
