Tell Me If This Sounds Like You

  • You tried Objective C, but the [] on everything made it so hard to read.
  • You tried Swift, but every time you went back to your project it was broken because the language spec changed, AGAIN
  • You thought about trying React, but you just couldn't convince yourself to use Javascript "for fun"

  • Context switching between languages is so hard.

  • You are tired of living on the struggle bus, fighting with a different language, tool chain, and ... Xcode.

  • You create web apps for a living, but more and more of your clients and customers are looking for apps... Real native apps.

What if there was a way to create native mobile apps without switching languages, struggling with substandard editors, and fumbling with unfamiliar tool chains?

That's what drew me to RubyMotion to create MY first app.

I created RubyMotion Jumpstart so that you too can experience the joy of creating mobile apps with your favourite language, Ruby.

Create a whole, useful app in a weekend,

with RubyMotion Jumpstart

You can create a non-trivial iOS app in a weekend, with our step-by-step videos to show you the way. And if you need to refer back to anything, you don't have to hunt for it in the videos, because there is an accompanying ebook, where you can find it all laid out. Our app colour theme and design worksheets with bonus videos will help you create a custom and flexible app design. And the source code screen templates (all working code) will take your app above and beyond, with the included web, map, and API-refreshable table screen examples. And finally, the App Deploy Checklist will help you get that app of yours up and running on your own phone!

Imagine where you could be in one weekend.

With a working app, that you created, on your own phone, showing off to your friends, family, and coworkers.

  • WITHOUT learning a new language.
  • WITHOUT dealing with the pain of Xcode.
  • USING a language you know and love
  • USING your favourite editor
  • USING a familiar set of tools
Right now, your biggest stumbling block to creating your app...

...is the huge learning curve and context switch to a new language and a whole new toolset (Xcode/Swift/Objective C). I know. I've been there, struggling to find the time, to learn the new toolset, the new language, and then struggling to find more time to actually build the app. Every time you go back to your project, Xcode needs to be updated, or the language changes out from under you. It's so frustrating.

Imagine if...

...you could just use Ruby(Motion), the language you love to use every day. And your favourite editor. And your familiar toolset (rake, bundler, rubygems). You could just concentrate on BUILDING YOUR APP.

RubyMotion Jumpstart will give you the boost you need to get that app up and running on your own phone.

I don't really have much time. How long will it take?

It's only 1.5 hours of content, to go through the main video lessons. Bonus lessons can be reviewed as you need them, if you need them, once you start building your own app.

I don't really like videos, is there something I can read?

Yup, we have an accompanying ebook, which covers all the content from the main lesson videos.

Is RubyMotion *really* Ruby?

RubyMotion is a *compiled* version of Ruby, forked at ~ Ruby 1.9. It treats keyword arguments a little differently than Ruby 2.0, but with the new DragonRuby initiative, has started converging back to the Ruby language spec.

Is it hard to design a mobile app? What about all the different screen sizes?

The included app design worksheets with bonus video will guide you through the basics of designing a pleasing and flexible app, that will work responsively on most screen sizes. 

I heard it's hard to get an app on my phone. Is that part of the course?

With our lesson on mobile provisioning, you will find it's as easy as 1,2,3 to set up your certificates, provision your phone, and deploy your app.

How do I create [X/Y/Z] kind of screen?

We don't want you to waste time figuring out ALL THE THINGS, so we've included working, documented source code for some of the most commonly asked for examples: Maps, Data-refreshable tables, Web Screens. More examples will be added as students of the course ask for them.

The caregivers?
