Ruby on Rails is an extremely productive web application framework written in Ruby. This course will show you how to make production-ready, efficient, and secure applications using Ruby. You’ll see how to use the framework to make web applications that your users and clients will love.
We start the course by Installing Ruby and Rails and quickly create an application using generators and scaffolding, while understanding how the Rails automations work and why that makes Rails 5 such an easy and productive web-development framework. We will then see how to implement a data model for your App, set up authentication and authorization for your customers and create user-friendly, fast-loading views. You will learn how to create and configure a Rails 5 application and use its new features such as Rails 5 API and ActionCable. Finally, we will take advantage of the new Rails 5 functionality to set-up messaging and presence status for your users and learn how to test these exciting new features.
