Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect to learn?

That you probably know more than you think you do. That it's not the giant changes that make an app more maintainable, but the small, incremental ones. These include a multitude of quick tips to improve your app's documentation and the quality of your code base.

Who's writing Maintainable Rails?

Each email tip is put together by Robby (on Rails) Russell. He's the Founder of Planet Argon, a Ruby on Rails agency that has been working on apps since 2005. He's also the writer behind Robby on Rails and the creator of the wildly popular framework, Oh My Zsh.   

Are you trying to sell me something?

While Planet Argon does provide Rails-related services, you probably aren't our target client (though, who knows? You might know someone who is.) We promise to never try to upsell or push our services on you. But if you want to chat, reach out. Robby's always up for talking shop.

How much does this course cost?

This is a completely free course! You've got nothing to lose. 

How long is the course?

The Maintainable Rails newsletter course is, currently...endless. While you can expect to receive an email from Robby a few times per month, he's always adding new content as it comes up. We'll continue to add new lessons to the course as long as developers are finding value in what they're reading.


Not enjoying the newsletter anymore? There's an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every Maintainable Rails newsletter. But I really hope you'll stick around!
