Rails for Everyone

This workshop is geared for folks who are new to Ruby on Rails. If you've heard about Rails but didn't know how to get started, or you've played with Rails a bit but aren't sure how to take the next step, then this class is for you.

We'll explore the higlights of Ruby on Rails in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Starting at the very beginning, we'll cover the essential elements of Ruby on Rails. By the time the class is over, you'll know how to start and finish a basic Rails application.

Along the way, you'll be learning how to follow best practices, everything from thinking about your initial design, to final deployment steps.

We'll be covering the current release of Rails, which right now means Rails 2.3.3.  But if Rails 3.0 is official by the date of the class, then everything we do will be in Rails 3.0.

Topics include:

  • Proper RESTful Design of Rails Applications
  • All about MVC
  • Connecting Pages to Your Database with ActiveRecord
  • Routing, Controllers, and Resources, Oh My
  • All About Views, Layouts, and Partials
  • Creating Web Services
  • Deploying Your Application
  • ...and more.

Bring your laptop if you want to code along.


Saturday, Oct 24, 2009, 9AM - 5PM, doors open at 8:30AM

We'll provide lots of water/soft drinks/snacks.  Everyone will be on their own for lunch (there are lots of good places within easy walking distance).
