How do we do this?

We have an educational program with 11 separate levels that incrementally takes you through a step-by-step learning journey, giving you all the necessary knowledge and skills to develop great applications and write brilliant code. And the best part? We give you the real-life experience and projects you need under your belt to land your first job. With our training program, we solve the problem of having an empty portfolio of relevant work when applying for a job.

We have been involved in mentoring and training developers since 2013 and reinteractive.ACADEMY is a culmination of many years of skill and experience. We need brilliant developers we can hire, so have decided to educate them directly.

 

Help at every step

At reinteractive.ACADEMY, we provide a unique level of help and support. Not only do you get chat access to our instructors at any step of any level, you also get access to our chat room to ask questions of each other and our skilled developers. We want to make sure you succeed, so ask away!

 

Start with the basics

Itching to get started? reinteractive.ACADEMY Level 0 throws you head first into building a blog, getting it published and online right away. Building on our years of experience helping thousands of people learn to program by running our Ruby on Rails Installfest in Australia and around the world, we have developed this Level 0 as a FREE introduction to web development.
 
You can get started by yourself right here, or you can attend an Installfest in a city near you. Either way our instructors are on hand to help you through any difficulty. This course is free. You can optionally pay for a certificate at the end if you wish.

 

Gain experience on real projects

At reinteractive.ACADEMY level VIII, you will build a mock project with one of our top reinteractive developers as your coding mentor and one of our reinteractive project managers as the “client”. This mock project helps you come to grips with what it takes to get the job done.
 
Level X is where the rubber meets the road. Here you team up with another reinteractive.ACADEMY student and build a real project, for a real client! These clients are non-profits and charities selected by reinteractive that need help with their online presence.
 
By the end of level X, you will have built three projects from scratch. One as a practice run, one as a developer for a real client, and the third as the project manager of two other students. You can put real web applications on your resume and help a good cause at the same time.
 
In fact, you can complete Level X as many times as you need, continuing to hone your skills until you land a job in the industry!

Easy to use learning platform

We have built an easy to use Learning Management Platform (LMS) which means you can study anywhere at any time. You get to progress at your own speed, with full access to our instructors during regular working hours to answer your questions.

Step By Step Progression Through Each Stage

The emphasis at reinteractive.ACADEMY is on application. We want you to be able to apply what you have learned. Each step of learning is delivered with this goal in mind. You progress by first laying the foundations and building layer upon layer until you are able to complete and manage a development project. reinteractive.ACADEMY is for both for the complete beginner who has never programmed software before, and also it is for the developer who wants to learn Ruby on Rails. You don’t graduate from a level until you have complete understanding and can apply it to a product.

Level I - Developer Basics

Level I provides you with a solid grounding in the basics, creating a secure foundation for the rest of your journey as a web application developer. On this course you learn a bunch of jargon while building out the blog you made at the Installfest. By balancing theory with practical basics, you get a real-world understanding of how these different parts fit together.

You learn the basic concepts of computing, internet and web applications, as well as the git source control tool, how to read code and even how to contribute to an open source project! In fact, on this Level, part of your graduation requirement is helping directly on an open source project. Our instructors will help you get it done. Once done, bam, that’s on your resume forever and is something prospective employers want to see.

As this is delivered through our reinteractive.ACADEMY, your instructor is online and available for you to ask questions or help you over any difficult sections.

Level II - Ruby Basics

Level II is where you start really learning about Ruby as a language and how it is used as part of the Ruby on Rails framework. Many courses gloss over Ruby, introducing it only in parts, never really diving into the power of this incredibly expressive and useful programming language. Of course, your instructor is available to you to help you through any difficulty and make sure you succeed.

Ruby is, after all, the only language dedicated to developer happiness, so getting to know Ruby gives you a new friend for life :-)

Level III - Rails Basics

With the basics of Ruby under your belt, it’s now time to get to know Rails and really learn how it works. This level is delivered in several parts, with you learning every step of the way. Not only do you get to learn Rails, but the practical exercises you do will help you understand HOW the Rails magic works in helping you develop applications quickly and effectively. As always, your instructor is on hand any time you hit a roadblock.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level IV - Design Basics

Now that you have “built the thing” it’s time to make it beautiful! Well, this is true, but part of design is understanding how it should work in the first place, so that making it beautiful is much easier as the interaction design is already worked out.

Level IV takes you on a journey with the basics of UX design, followed by how to style HTML and web applications with CSS to make them look good and be usable.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level V - Dynamic Basics

Modern web-based applications are interactive. By this stage, you would have already had some dealings with dynamic page updates in the previous levels, but here in Level V is where you learn really how they work, how to utilise them and some of the pitfalls you can get into.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level VI - Apprentice Developer

At Level VI, you really get rolling! Now we help you learn about all the other things that make you a great Ruby on Rails application developer. You learn how to debug applications, how to find and use APIs, the discovery and use of the powerful rubygem ecosystem, and how to properly ask for help on the web’s help sites.

Level VI strips away the mystery behind how a developer fixes an application and gets the help they need to develop highly complex systems.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level VII - Recognised Developer

Level VII rounds out your knowledge of advanced Ruby on Rails features, such as caching, turbolinks, activeJob and much more. You also learn how to use deployment tools like Heroku and OpsCare to get your application live.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level VIII - Junior Developer

With all the prior levels done, you are now ready to launch into development. At Level VIII you pair up with another reinteractive.ACADEMY student to work together in building a mock project with one of our reinteractive.ACADEMY instructors acting as the client for your project. Another instructor will act as your mentor, guiding you both through the tasks at hand.

Here you get experience with project management tools, client interaction, deadlines, figuring out how to actually do things yourself, and so on. This is a brilliant opportunity to really learn how to build an application from scratch and see how the whole process from start to finish hangs together.
 
[COMING SOON]


Level IX - Project Manager

Now that you’ve experienced building a project, you learn the importance of project management and handling client expectations. Project Management skills are as important as development skills in achieving a successful outcome. On this course, you will learn what the important points of project management are, how to communicate properly to clients, what the pitfalls are to avoid, and much much more.

With Level IX in hand, you then are ready to enter our graduate developer course!
 
[COMING SOON]

 

Level X - Graduate Developer

Level X is where it all gets real.

On this level, you work directly with another Level X student to create a real-life project for a nonprofit or charity group. You do this at least twice. The first time you are developing with a student project manager, the second time you are project managing two other students do their Level X course.

The app you build here will directly impact society for the better, helping a charity or nonprofit achieve their goals, and you get to put that site on your resume as something you directly built with valuable feedback from the client.

Level X can be done as many times as you wish, increasing your skills until you are able to land a job in the industry. We want you to win!
