In this ruby on rails class, students will learn how to build dynamic database driven web applications like Basecamphq.com and web platforms like twitter.com.
We will be sending out instructions to the students on how to setup a rails development environment on OS X and Windows before the first class. In the first class, we will learn to use this dev environment to create a rails application. The rest of the course will be a whirlwind tour of ruby on rails that will include generating a rails application, exploring the models, views, and controllers, and finally creating their first piece of data using Ruby on Rails.
As a pre-requisite, you should be familiar with the basics of:
Website components, e.g. databases, web servers
Programming data structures, e.g. what variables are and how to assign values to them
