I've been accepted into a full-time web development bootcamp. I'm raising funds to pay for the class and the time off work. The class ain't cheap, but it's good, and undeniably the giant leap forward for me and my family. Can you help? More ...
A few people have asked what I'll be studying and where all this is taking place.

So, the bootcamp is run by a group called General Assembly, a global programming community with thousands of members in 8 cities around the world. Even though I'd love to hole up and code in Hong Kong for a few months, I'll be here, doing it in San Francisco. Could be worse, I guess.

From day one we'll be focusing mainly on Ruby and Ruby on Rails, but also JavaScript, AJAX, Backbone.js and Node.js among other things. We'll also be learning patience, determination, frustration management, and how to use your brain after it's been totally fried. (Standard in any computer course.)
