The Ruby and Ruby on Rails Starter Course, completely re-designed and upgraded in November 2017, provides a simple introduction to programming using Ruby and to Web Applications Development using the Rails framework (Rails 5, but can be applied to Rails 4 as well). This course is for students who have no prior experience in programming and is an optional pre-course to "The Complete Ruby on Rails Developer" or "The Professional Ruby on Rails Developer with Rails 5" courses here on Udemy.
Why Ruby on Rails? Since its introduction, Ruby on Rails has rapidly become one of the most powerful tools for building web applications for startups and existing software houses. Some of the top sites using Ruby on Rails are Basecamp, Twitter, Shopify, Github, LivingSocial, Groupon, Hulu, Airbnb, Yellow Pages and much more.
This course provides a structured introduction to programming, with varied data structures as simple mini projects as developed moving on to Rails where a Todo web app project is developed. It utilizes video and text lectures, homework and exercises. There will also be references to free resources available on the internet to supplement the course materials.
Some features of this course are:
- Ruby programming - introduction to Object Oriented Programming
- Rails 5 using cloud-based Integrated Development Environment
- Rails MVC structure - Models, Views, Controllers
- Model-backed forms
- and much more!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to learn how to build web applications
- Anyone who wants to get started with Ruby on Rails
- Anyone who wants to learn programming basics
Hi, I'm Mashrur, I'm a full-time programming instructor specializing in programming fundamentals, web application development, machine learning and cyber security. I have been a technology professional for over a decade and have degrees in Computer Science and Economics.
My niche is building comprehensive career focused technology courses for students entering new/complex and challenging fields in today's technology space. This is a nice segway for me, since my real passion is building and tinkering with programming languages. I love everything to do with development and learning about new tools and technologies. My favorite languages are Python and Ruby on Rails, and my favorite tech fields are web app development, machine learning and data-analytics (which is where Ruby on Rails and Python fall into place nicely). I encourage my students to focus on these technologies as well.
In my past (corporate) life, I worked with Enterprise Software Systems with roles played in analysis, development, management and training. I led projects using both agile and waterfall methodologies and thus am well versed in the inner workings of the software development and delivery world.
During my time in corporate America, I realized how much I enjoyed training new hires and new team members and helping them succeed. I dedicated a good amount of time over 7 years on-boarding new analysts and developers and then worked with them to build and maintain systems which put me in a unique position to know and understand what new entrants to a field need in order to succeed. I strongly believe in focusing on fundamentals and practice; and not in shortcuts or gimmicks.
So join me for my comprehensive career-focused technology courses as I guide you through the world of web application development, machine learning and cyber security using Python, Ruby on Rails, MySQL and others and bringing your ideas and passions to life.
