Amazing Deal on Learning Ruby

Comments (5)

Today on Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals you can purchase a $250 Ruby course from Udemy for only $49. The course, Learn Ruby Programming (In Ten Easy Steps) contains over 30 video lectures, written course materials, and additional discounts on Ruby literature.

With more and more companies making the move to Ruby on Rails, demand for Ruby developers has gone through the roof. If you are interested in giving Ruby a look, this is a great place to start.

MakerBot Deals, TechStars Cloud, and Convertible Notes

Comments (10)

Before we invested in MakerBot, we bought and assembled a Thing-O-Matic. When I say we, I mean me, Jason, and Ross. It took us about 20 hours (Jason and I did the first half; Jason and Ross did the second half) and was a blast – think of it as an adult lego project. Our Thing-O-Matic has been steadily printing stuff – you can play a game of chess with our Thing-O-Matic pieces. the next time you are in my office.

As part of the endless series of Amazing Deals I bring you from my deal site, today’s offer is a fully assembled Thing-O-Matic. If you want your own 3D printer, but you don’t want to assemble it, you can buy it fully assembled for $2,500. But, through the magic of daily deals, there are 20 available for a 20% discount ($2,000). This is a one time offer from my friends at MakerBot so grab ‘em while they are available.

In additional TechStars Cloud launched today along with the first episode of TechStars on Bloomberg TV.

And finally, for all of you that have written asking for a “Convertible Debt Series” like our term sheet series, we’ve just started one on AsktheVC.com. The first post is up and introduces the series – we’ll be working through all of the terms in a convertible debt deal over the next few weeks.

Today on Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals, we are featuring the Urban Sherpa Strap from Go Gaga. Sherpa Straps distribute the weight from laptop bags, gym bags, and briefcases that take straps, across your back and shoulders. I’ve been using the Sherpa Strap for a while – it’s dynamite.

With today’s deal, you can get the strap and free shipping for $19, a discount of 50%.

If you have a bag that you love, but are tired of having it cut into your shoulder as you are traveling from DEN to LGA, check out Sherpa Straps. For each purchase, Go Gaga will make a donation to The Mountain Fund, helping some real sherpas.

Also, check out today’s deal deal on your iPhone or Android. Deal Co-op recently launched the Feld Store web app, a full touch site for mobile buyers. Once you store a credit card in your account, you can check out my deals each week on mobile, and buy future deals with one click.

At Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals, we only bring you shiny happy deals. If you are a Mac user and like to live in a mail client instead of a browser, Sparrow Mail is for you. I paid $10 when it came out but through the magic of daily deals am making it available for $5 for the next 24 hours (up to 1000 copies).

Jason Calacanis even loves it – on G+ he says:

“I’m absolutely in love with Sparrow Mail. It’s made me 10-35% faster in GMAIL/Google Apps.”

For the next 24 hours, you can get Sparrow Mail for $5 instead of $10. Just wander over to Brad Feld’s Amazing Deals and grab it. And be able to say “I got something for $5 that Brad paid $10 for that he then made available for $5 bwahahahahaha.”
