- You should have basic Ruby on Rails experience
Build an API application that you can use EVERYWHERE and hook up ANYTHING into it!
SUPER productive videos with a total focus on what is important!
CODE SNIPPETS for each coding lesson!
Comprehensive resources and articles!
Learn Test Driven Development like a PRO
Get familiar with best Practices for API development!
In this course, you'll know how to create professional API application in Ruby on Rails with TDD!
You probably heard about a popular trend to create web applications with a split API and frontend parts. Having a pure API application allows you to hook up ANY frontend you will ever wish.
Knowledge about creating pure API applications is necessary for modern microservice architectures for REALLY BIG projects!
What Will You Build?
All of my courses are 'learn-by-doing': I'll create a real-life application and you can follow each step to make similar one for yourself. In this course we'll build one complete API application, that can work as a link-log, similar to RubyFlow project. We'll do all this using Test Driven Development, the way the best developers in the world develop their applications every day.
This mega app will include the full set of features, including everything from authentication to managing comments. You'll learn how to create an app that allows multiple users to log in, publicize articles and list them as a newsfeed. It's my goal to ensure you understand each feature we build into this app so you can apply them to your own personal or professional projects in the future.
I can always help in case of any troubles so if you'll encounter some, just write through one of our communication channels.

My name is Sebastian, I’m a full-stack developer and a passionate teacher.
I started a career as a web developer in 2012 looking for booming technologies to get the most interesting job possible. I decided to run my own projects using Ruby on Rails and soon, after improving my skills in smaller projects, I got a job in Creatubbles.
This is a safe, first-ever children-friendly, social, online platform, where I was the youngest full-stack developer for over three years.
I gained valuable experience in distributed systems, microservice architecture and API.
Currently, apart from my part-time job for my best clients, I run the Driggl company on a daily basis creating new educational content and helping my existing students to grow and develop new skills.
Additionally, I am a piano player, a karate master and I love chocolate and good coffee.
My passion for teaching has been developing since childhood and now I’m making this dream real.
If you consider enrolling in my courses, I can promise that I’ll do my best to deliver the most valuable content on the chosen topics.
I‘ve already worked on very successful start-ups so from a practical point of view I know what to do to become the best developer.
In all my courses, you'll acquire sound knowledge and I'll show you how to create applications in a modern way using the best coding practices available today.
Even though my courses are completed, I still update the content of all the lessons to help you stay up to date with what is needed in the workplace.
Thanks to enrolling in my courses, you'll get a lot of additional support and resources helping you to develop as a developer and to be a part of the dream project or even to create your own.
