Absolutely fantastic course! John is such a fantastic teacher, he is relaxed and goes straight to the point. He covers complex subjects with ease and you understand all what he is saying! If you want to demystify RoR, this course is for you! I can't wait to get more courses from John!

Loved your course #RubyonRails for #WebDevelopment - was my first Rails app I ever built...now I'm hooked!!
-Sandy Hogan

A very informative and insightful course led by a very passionate instructor. Thank you, Mr. Elder for this wonderful learning experience.
-Soon Kheng Chan

If you've been anxious about learning Ruby on Rails because of its steep learning curve, or if you are disheartened by the rants of Rubyists to learn Ruby first before Rails, then John will show you that diving directly into RoR isn't too hard. Although you'll get overwhelmed every once in a while with terminologies and magic that the framework is known for, you'll eventually understand it after following John's course. So, this course pushes you from the ledge and teaches you how to fly.
-Gene Ryan Briones

This is my first online course and first programming course ever! I am so impressed with how informative the video is. For someone like me who has no background of programming at all, and be able to finish the course, anyone can do it! There will be some errors along the way, just be persistent and going back and forth on the video, eventually something will click. Apart from that, John also is very swift on replying, assisting and supporting me along the way. Thank you!!!

So far John's teaching is the easiest to understand that I've seen out there
-Tom Scarrella

Thanks for this tutorial it was awesome! Probably one of the best tutorials I've seen. John explains everything really well. Highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking to get started with Ruby on Rails.

This is BY FAR the simplest, most understandable way to learn Ruby on Rails that I've experienced...Thank you thank you thank you...
-Jennifer K. Falk

Finally an easy to follow Ruby on Rails tutorial. John gives you a great primer in Rails development that you can use to create more complex projects.
-Rafid Hoda

Amazing course, easy to follow and instructor is pleasant to listen to!!! Have recommended this course to many people!
-Deana Louise Lawrence

Great course! I have been a self-taught programmer off and on for years and just recently decided to get more serious about it and have been focusing on Ruby. Decided to do this as a side project while learning more of the details about Ruby and RoR. This course was great to be able to work on and see how easy it is to get an app/project up and running and understanding a bunch of the concepts needed for basic projects. Thank you!!

Hi John, I wan't to say that I love your books! They are easy to read and follow and they have got me bit by the affiliate marketer bug! I'm currently working on my first site, it's slow for me at first but I can see my improvements already. I wouldn't have even thought about this before but since reading your thick site guide I'm hooked! I currently own another ecommerce site but I bought the programming for it. I'm now writing my own scripts and excited to be doing so!
Thanks again John!

John Thanks allot for holding my hand through this! I am an animator not a web designer. Hope I did this right!
-Robert Kaplan

Hi John, believe me, I have read up on just about all the “big internet people” and despite their incomes, I haven't been too impressed with them. They all lack something,…I'm trying to think what it is as I'm typing this….I actually think there are two reasons: You really come across as wanting to help people be successful, and therefore you show people constructively, instead of giving them just part of the puzzle. The second reason is that you are not arrogant. Apparently success has not gone to your head. You can tell people you're successful because you are, and you have every right to do so. But you're
not over the top or arrogant about it. Yes, that sums it up…
Take care,
-Michele Miller

Hello John, I am impressed! I see that you are the kind of person I like to deal with. You seem honest, and sincere, and you have certainly hit on all the things I have already been doing to get ready to see my site grow. And the best of luck to your future! I see it is bright already.
-Keith Hansford

I am over the moon with this product(especially the Link popularity), I'm actually a mainframe programmer and I think your submission tool/utilities are really great…a refreshing change to get a quality product from the net. I actually run three small consultancy companies and I am always being asked about Internet related subjects so at least I can talk about one that actually delivers… Keep up the good work and mainly keep the tips coming..

Hi love your book it is helping me alot i am only 15 and i have a web site out there and it is doing fairly well thanks alot!!!!!!
-Stephen Shamakian

Thanks, John. This is very helpful info. Thanks for taking the time to check it out for me. Your idea of placing the bottom page links is great. Thanks for saving me a ton of hassle! All My Best,

Hi again John. …your software – I think it will save A LOT of time as I try to get this new site up to the top ranking. My friends and I are pretty profficient at search engine ranking and know the tweeks and fixes that should be done on sites to get them up there. But, as I said, the manual submission process takes time. That's where I think your software will give me the most value.

Hi …your software is undoubtedly the best I have seen. I have downloaded demos of all other software and I am just in awe at the sheer brilliance of your products. Thanks once again for all your assistance. As a newbie to internet marketing would it be possible for you to give me some pointers in internet advertising? I realize how busy you are but I will appreciate every bit of experience from someone like you who is very professional and experienced. I have ordered Submission Spider and Yip Submit from you which I am thoroughly enjoying . I have really enjoyed the support and co-operation of your company. Best Wishes

Thanks for the update and keeping me posted. You're one of the few software providers out there who not only offer outstanding support but also prompt information when new versions of the software comes out. This was well worth my investment! And you can quote me. Thanks, again-

Thank you for your quick response to my concerns and for covering them all. I really like your software and will be using it more often. I have known about your company for some time and know you produce high quality software for web promotion and judging from your quick response – not auto response – I can tell you are a hands on company that deals with customer service and concerns in a professional manner which is a very good quality on the net. …It is a very good program and easy to use. I consider your program one of the best for all around user friendliness and I have tried just about all of the submission software [on the net]. Thank you again for answering my concerns and I know I will enjoy being a user of your product. Best regards from;

John: I have a small computer training company in South Florida and I have a very large clientel of realtors who are always interested in promoting web sites on the net. I was explaining and showing the class how to register with the search engines and I described tools such as your Submission-Spider program. I downloaded it and installed it in front of the class…it worked well!
-David Reid

John, I have to commend you on your fast and thoughtful customer service. I almost think you are a robot. It seems worth the price just to have the sincere customer service that you give. I went to another site that guarantees placement for $3,000 to set up and $300 a month to maintain and update. Your product seems too good to be true. I noticed that you have good search engine placement, so you know what you are doing. I really appreciate the length you go to to support your product, and I wish you the best. Thanks,

“PHP Programing For Affiliate Marketers”
This book is a crash course, well maybe a bit more then a crash course on affiliate marketing using PHP to automate things. There are some ingenious ideas to get a site up with thousands of pages using related but different keywords. Using templates and a couple addons the process is pretty much automatic once it's set up. If you do not know PHP or HTML then you may want to learn the basics. This book does go through some of that but knowing more will help, If you are serious about affiliate marketing then this book is a great tool to add to your arsenal.

“PHP Programing For Affiliate Marketers”
I know a lot about PHP already and I have even written a book about it for those just starting out –>The Joy of PHP: A Beginner's Guide to Programming Interactive Web Applications with PHP and mySQL But I can always learn more, and so can you. So I'm ALWAYS reading. I am happy to report that I learned some great tricks from this book– things that I would not have thought of on my own. What I particularly liked about the book is that it sticks to a specific topic (affiliate marketing) so that the things that John says about PHP have a context that makes them relevant. Nothing is more boring than a book containing an endless list of functions with no idea how or when to use them. John's book is not like that. What John offers instead is “just enough” PHP to solve the problem at hand. John tells an interesting story, and teaches some PHP along the way. I'm glad I read it.
