Do you want to quickly get up to speed on one of the most popular web application frameworks? Are you interested in working with a language optimized for developer happiness?
Drawing from the real world experience of Brilliant Fantastic's team, the Saturday on Rails course will provide an introduction to the Ruby on Rails web framework. We will share the knowledge gained on how to build high quality, well-constructed applications.
This course will provide a hands-on learning experience and one-on-one interactions with an experienced web developer. You will learn how the Ruby on Rails web framework works and you will be able to create your own web applications at the end of the day.
By the completion of this workshop, you will know the different parts of a Ruby on Rails web application and know how to construct a full application. The application we build will have a database backend and you will be able to read, create, update, and delete data. You will also learn about how to properly test a web application using several different techniques.
