Master the Object-Oriented Mindset in Ruby and Rails

It's time to make objects work for you.

Master the Object-Oriented Mindset in Ruby and Rails (MOOM) is a compilation of everything I’ve learned about writing flexible and comprehensible OO code over my two decades as a software developer, distilled and applied to practical Ruby and Rails examples. Rather than teaching a comprehensive “system” for OO design, MOOM focuses on inspiration: giving you the tools you need to identify the “missing objects” to decompose your applications into small, cohesive parts.

MOOM is a self-paced course that includes:

  • Two dozen fast-paced video lessons selected from the renowned RubyTapas archives, with new introductory material and “food for thought” exercises.
  • The Capacitor Sessions, a series of fifteen recorded pair-programming sessions, showing how the object-oriented mindset is applied on a real-world Rails project. The sessions are further broken down into tightly edited ~20 minute episodes, in order to make them easy to consume. 
  • 8 recorded hour-long Q&A sessions with industry experts like Justin Searls, Betsy Haibel, Ben Orenstein, Noel Rappin, and Corey Haines.
  • Supplemental reading and viewing: curated pointers to best-of-the-best talks, articles, and papers on OO thinking.
  • A dedicated forum for sharing and learning from other students.
  • Almost $300 in course-exclusive savings on related books and courses from Sandi Metz, Katrina Owen, Kent Beck, Justin Weiss, and many others.

*Note: The Capacitor Sessions videos are fully recorded, but some of them are still in post-production. Course members receive emailed updates as the episodes are released.
