Black Friday 2020 Deals

November 25, 2020

This is a special time of the year to give back to the Ruby on Rails community. You have so wonderful and supportive of GoRails. 🤗

I'm running a big sale across all the GoRails products this year. I only do this once a year so if you're thinking about grabbing a GoRails subscription, Jumpstart Pro, or one of my courses, grab it now! Deals end on November 30th, 2020.

36% off GoRails with the yearly plan - Get the deal

You can get a yearly subscription to GoRails for just $144/year. That's $12/mo to keep up-to-date with the latest Ruby on Rails features, learn testing, and how to build features for your products.

If you're already subscribed to GoRails, you can upgrade from the monthly plan to lock in the savings.

Buy Jumpstart Pro and get 3 free months of - Get the deal

Jumpstart Pro is a pre-built Ruby on Rails application template that comes with Authentication, Teams, Payments (with Stripe SCA support), an API, and a ton of other features ready out of the box.

We know hosting can be expensive when you're spending your savings trying to launch a production idea. That's why we're bundling 3 months of so you can deploy your apps without worrying about hosting costs eating into your rent money.

In 2021, we'll be working on Jumpstart Pro to include updates for the new Turbolinks and Stimulus changes coming soon. Since we have a lot of ongoing maintenance, I'm going to change the pricing to start charging for yearly updates with new customers in the future. Now is a great time to buy Jumpstart Pro and be grandfathered in for free updates for your license forever!

$50 off Payments with Ruby on Rails Master Class - Get the deal

I recently launched the new Payments with Ruby on Rails master class with updates for the all new Stripe APIs. If you need to add Strong Customer Authentication for payments in your application, now's the time to buy the course. I spent 3 months learning and implementing the Stripe changes for SCA so you don't have to.

The price goes up to $149 after December 2nd, so make sure to snag the course while you can.

$50 off Refactoring Rails - Get the deal

Ben Orenstein (who you probably know from and expert Vim skills) teaches a wonderful course on the refactorings, patterns, and best practices that will let you ship quickly even as your Rails app matures.

I personally went through this course and regularly reference it when I refactor my code.

Private Livestreams for Advanced Ruby: Behind The Magic students - Get the deal

I wanted to do something special for the Advanced Ruby course since it is BRAND NEW! This course covers tons of techniques that the Rails core team and gem developers use to build fantastic libraries in Ruby. These are things you won't typically see in day-to-day Rails code, but knowing these things can drastically improve your Ruby code (whether it's in a Rails app or not).

For Black Friday, I'm doing several private livestreams exclusively for Advanced Ruby students. I'll be answering questions, refactor Ruby snippets with you, and most importantly I will show you how to apply these techniques in a real example: the Pay gem.

That's everything! 2020 has been a hard year and I wanted to say thanks for your support. I'm incredibly fortunate to be able to do this for a living. Thank you so much for making that possible!
