THE FIRST 20 HOURS is a book by Josh Kaufman that offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers.

Having learned how to ski, ride a motorcycle, sing, play the guitar, skateboard, oil paint, remodel a house, build a computer, etc. independently I new his claim is possible. I never monitored the time I put in.

I decided to learn the LAMR stack in 20 hours… and I did.

The components of the LAMR stack are as follows: * Linux, a NoSQL database * Angular.js, a JavaScript MVC framework that runs in browser JavaScript engines * MongoDB, a NoSQL database * Rails, an execution environment for event-driven server-side and networking applications

The following is an example of how to create a simple ruby on rails application, on a Ubuntu development machine, push it to GitHub source control, and to Heroku for cloud hosting.

Here is the build of tools on my virtual machine: * Ubuntu 12.04 LTS * Git v 1.7.9.5 * Rails v 3.2.3 * Sublime Text 2 Build 2195
