When developing this course I wanted to really focus on the new developer. I have set things up so you can come into this course with no experience and once you complete the lessons you will be able to construct and deploy a Ruby on Rails application. The focus is on how to construct an application and not on "building a 'Time Machine' using Rails".
Some areas covered include: MVC, CRUD, Github, Heroku, Rails Console, Cloud 9, Rails Generators, Gems and other important topics.
Once you have completed this course you will have this skill to build out your very own application using a "step by step" approach or by using Rails generators.
Our first Model is our "User", we cover how this "Model" can be anything you desire.
We then look at styling your site using Gems and Bootstrap. I also show you resources on where to find cool Bootstrap layouts that you can simply drop into your application.
We then cover how to build association between a "User Model" and a "Article Model". This is an important step in any applications as it gives the ability to associate objects in your database.

I have a lot of experience in media production. Back in the 90’s I worked as a Studio Manager and producer, I then became more involved with developing Interactive Media. I became a fan of rails back in 2012 and dove in head first. Over the years I have worked on some pretty cool projects. I am here to share what I can and help you along your path into the world of application development using Ruby on Rails.
