When Big Nerd Ranch started out, we did one thing and we did it well: we taught programming languages. Now, more than a decade later, we’ve expanded to include consulting, software products and an ever-growing library of Big Nerd Ranch books. Learning is at the core of everything we do now and everything we'll do in the future.
Octane is a coffeeshop and bar serving expertly-prepared espresso drinks, french-press coffee and V60 pourover coffee, food, snacks, craft beers, wines, and specialty cocktails with locations in Atlanta's Midtown West district and Grant Park at The Jane.
Rocket Whale is a group of fun, smart people who get stuff done and are trying to make the world a better place through software design and development. We're currently working on a policies and procedures management app called HowTracker that will be released in 2013.
The Phuse is a team of creative professionals that crafts websites, interfaces, and brands. While they specialize on everything front end, they know how important it is to have killer backend developers on their projects, and use Rails on internal projects to keep the team sharp!
