Ruby on Rails – Imagine, design, build web apps and bring your dreams to life with Rails 5
This course teaches you to build and design web apps and you will learn to build real-time features such as chatrooms with ease. This course is for students of all levels and backgrounds; those who have no experience in programming at all; those who have worked with other web app development frameworks but want to make the switch to or try Ruby on Rails; and also for students who have tried Ruby on Rails in the past but want to take their skills to the next level. Ruby on Rails has rapidly become one of the most powerful tools for building web applications for startups and existing software houses. It’s perfect for entrepreneurs or startups looking to rapidly prototype their ideas and bring them to life. Some key aspects of this course are working with git for version control and GitHub as a code repository; building your own authentication system from scratch using the default Rails stack, including admin features, log in/logout, and signup; working with Bootstrap for UI, Amazon Web Services for file/image hosting, and gravatars; and more.

Style and Approach
This course provides a very structured approach to teaching Rails and how to use it to implement ideas. It teaches techniques to make the code work. There are video lectures, text follow-up lectures after each video lecture, homework, challenge projects, and monthly code challenges. This course focuses strongly on practice and understanding the fundamentals. Most of the code is written from scratch, limiting the use of shortcuts and generators, and with absolutely no scaffolding or magic. This is accomplished by diving right in and using a pre-configured Ruby on Rails development environment in the cloud, eliminating the time and effort required to set up a local development environment and the roadblocks that go with it.
