John founded one of the Internet's earliest advertising networks (bannerclicks.com) and sold it to publicly traded WebQuest International, Inc. (WEBQ) at the height of the first dot com boom. He then built a biotech b2b portal website (vitalBio.com) and sold it to a group of investment bankers. After that he developed the award-winning Submission-Spider search engine submission software that's been used by over 3 million individuals, businesses, and governments in over 42 countries.
Today John does freelance web development work, writes and publishes a series of books on Internet Marketing and Computer Programming, and runs Codemy.com the online school he founded that teaches people to code through a series of hands-on interactive web videos about Ruby on Rails and PHP...

My Latest Book
Learning Ruby On Rails has always had an aura of mystery about it. With this book I hope to wipe that away and make Ruby on Rails easy to learn for everyone. Aimed at the absolute beginner, no prior programming skills are needed to get started.
Follow along as I build a Pinterest clone from scratch using Ruby on Rails. The book is a companion to my Intro to Ruby on Rails course at Codemy.com and can be used as a textbook for the course.
My Latest Project
I founded Codemy.com to teach people to code using easy-to-follow videos and hands on help online when they need it. Learning to code shouldn't be difficult or take years and years to do!
