All I ask for is to pass the Free course "Learn Ruby on Rails, Heroku and Wistia APIs" with understanding of how Rails works. That's it.
Hi Leo, Great Course. I started loving Ruby. Just one question about AirBnd2... I saw your campaign on Kickstarter. So the course will be released and hosted at code4startup.com or at kickstarter!? Thanks
Leo seems to have really good knowledge and that is amazing. I enjoyed the course a lot.
Value for money course! Waiting for Airbnb2..
In this course, Leo is not only teaching you how to code in a pragmatic and tangible way, but for the many non-tech founders out there, like myself, who wish to start a startup to improve this world Leo empowers you to do so. Thank you, Leo, you are allowing me to fulfill my dreams!
Highly recommend. Great value for money!!
So Far, good
Awesome. Very comprehensive course and easy to follow, well laid out and explained.
Wow. Just wow. How I dreamt of owning up this course when I didn't have the money, and eventually when I did, it didn't disappoint me, it was a double blessing. Oh, and Leo gave me a free 2 week bonus because of the Christmas holidays! WOW. I just can't recommend this enough to anyone who really wants to code hands down #*&!%.. :) Another one, Leo!
This is a great course and Leo give real helpful and quick support! It is really worth. Thanks Leo and keep doing great job!
This course was awesome and Leo was ridiculously helpful. I learnt so much doing it. Will happily buy more courses in future. Keep up the great work Leo!
The course itself is okay, however I find Leo's accent quite fatiguing to keep up with. For paid course its a bit outdated, since people actually pay for course, at least, course should been updated frequently. Don't be discouraged this course is GREAT, for starters. Cheers.

I really enjoy this course. Thanks to Leo for providing this amazing course.
Very good course. When you complete it you realize how ruby on rails works and you are able to start experimenting yourself more consciously. Just keep in mind that the Airbnb project that you will build is for educational purposes, so you need to put extra effort after the course if you want to make the project a "real life" one. Awesome anyway!
I really like Leo's approach to teaching. By the end of this course you'll have built a fairly advanced Rails web application that can actually be used. Highly recommended for people just starting out with Rails... like me.
this course is awesome but i'm still waiting the next Stretch Goals!: "Extra Advance Skill with Graph. AirBnb clone will have graph in the dashboard showing different info in different formats: Geo map, Percentage chart, bar chart."
Hi I found the course really good. I learned alot ... it was very helpful in doing my project for college. I learned alot of everyday things that you dont learn in college (eg. facebook authentication on the site....). I recommend the course say if you need to build a website... my one was quite similar to airbnb so I am using this as a sort of template. its quite easy to follow too!!
Simply awesome. What I love is that lots of rails topics are covered and then it's up to us to choose the ones we want to dig deeper.
5 Star Course, the real world product cloning methodology that seems to be in vogue in todays education environment can be very hit and miss but this one is a definite hit. I think Leo hit the sweet spot between depth of subject knowledge matter and breadth of subjects covered, long may it continue.
I have taken many tutorials on other Ruby on Rails and on frameworks (Laravel, Django) and I could not stick with the framework because I was not learning how to actually build something. I was only learning theory, MVC, and the language specifically. Finally, after building AirAlien with Leo I am excited to go back and learn about theory, MVC, and the language behind Ruby on Rails because I have accomplished my dream of building an app! My dream was not to become a Ruby master, but after taking this course I feel confident to go back and build my Ruby skills and become a Ruby master one small step at a time.
Awesome course. Thanks to Leo, now I can build powerful and functional apps on my own.
This is the best programing tutorial that I have ever experienced. This course is well-organized, efficient, and lots of fun!!
I personally love this Product-Oriented approach as it is so practical. Learning this way is by far the best approach to build a real thing.
If you're a beginner of Ruby on Rails like me, read Michael Hartl's book and take this course. One is for your basic Rails and the other is for building real apps.
I love Leo's teaching style. Will definitely subscribe for more of his courses.
This course is absolutely amazing. Leo really knows what he is talking about and he has really helped me learned a lot. Highly recommend this course to those who wanting to create a real app with Ruby on Rails.

Tutorial is amazing, Can't wait for the advanced features of this. It'll be soon! Thanks Leo. All the best.
You are amazing Leo. Your instructions are easy to follow.
Another amazing course.. Thanks so much guys!!
Such a great course. You just follow what Leo says, and you will get what you want.
Love your work Leo! Your tutorials always leave me with a much deeper understanding of what I'm doing. Keep making stuff like this and I'll keep supporting it!
