On Learning to Code, pt. 3: Resources to Teach You Rails in a Month Since I find the process of memorizing by looking at the same material over and over again extremely tedious, I’ve developed my own method, which involves finding a handful of introductory classes online and speeding through them really quickly. When I was in college, I used to download podcasts of the same courses I was taking but at different universities, like Berkeley or Stanford. Then I’d listen to the podcasts while I was on the subway or walking around. It turned out that my approach eliminated hours of studying I would have had to do otherwise, and teachers love it when you’re able to bring in a unique perspective that wasn’t covered in class. If you were in a room full of smart people, would you ask the same person to explain something to you over and over again, or would you ask a bunch of people? What happens is that sometimes the way a concept is taught really resonates with you, and sometimes it doesn’t. Step 1: Ruby on Rails 3 Essential Training by Kevin Skoglund

Yet economic impact studies paint an incomplete picture and can be dangerously misused. Fractured Atlas's approach is holistic and focused on infrastructure. Policymakers shouldn't be curators, hand-picking artists and organizations to support based on perceived aesthetic merit. Talking to Policymakers Fractured Atlas educates policymakers about the importance of infrastructure on local, state, and federal levels.
