Think of the most awesome app, something crazy that can anything, something even magical. Now, that you have an idea in mind, you can actually build it with Ruby on Rails. This magical framework has been the power behind a lot of huge and powerful apps, including Airbnb, Hulu, Zendesk, SoundCloud, etc.
Now, don’t go confusing Ruby and Rails as the same thing. Ruby is actually a programming language that can be used with or without Rails. On the other hand, Rails is a framework, a powerful one at that. It is open sourced and can be used to build dynamic and modern web applications.
Building apps isn’t always a fun task, sometimes it can be tedious and long and boring, but with the right tutorial or course, there is always a fun way to learn a great programming language or even a framework. This course has been designed exactly for that purpose!
While building a quirky website, you will actually learn how to start programming in Ruby with Ruby on Rails. This course starts at the very beginning, so newbies you don’t have to worry about being overpowered with information. And intermediate students, simply skip the sections you already know and move on the actual building part.
In this course, you will learn the basic syntax of Ruby and simple components of Ruby on Rails by building an actual little fun superhero name generator website from scratch. In this you will not only learn how to design the website, but also connect a third party API to generate data and images, then we'll learn how to manipulate that on our app.
We'll also really dive into the Rails controller (the 'C' in the Rails MVC system). Learning how to work with the Controller gives you all kinds of power over your app to do really cool things.
That’s not all, you will also learn how to use the famous Bootstrap CSS framework to style the app.
