You’ll be amazed how quick and easy it is to create very professional looking websites, even if you have no programming or web design experience at all.
Watch over my shoulder as I build a Pinterest website step by step right in front of you. You’ll follow along and build your own copy. By the time we’re finished, you’ll have a solid understanding of Ruby on Rails and how to use it to build awesome web apps.
