Learn Ruby on Rails By Building Projects
About this Course
Projects in Ruby On Rails is for developers looking to upgrade their ruby and rails skills. This course is not for beginners and will be more suited to professionals who have already done some Ruby coding. If you are new to Ruby on Rails you can try our introductory course.
The course has been taught primarily in Linux. We have included tutorials to help you get started in Windows but we suggest you use some flavour of Linux for this course. You can use virtual OS if required. This course also assumes you know SQL and as we have used it in all the examples. The following projects have been selected and created in the course. It will not only help you understand the core concepts of ROR but will also teach you the best of development practices.
Book Store – The first project is a simple book stock application. You will learn to install the Rails and MySQL and will build the app step by step adding controllers, views and models. By the end of it you will have pretty good idea to build yourself a similar stock keeping web app in ROR.
Image Gallery – Learn to create image gallery with optimal image storage and retrieval mechanism. This simple yet fun project will build further on your knowledge and will teach you professional rail development methodologies.
Shopping Cart – A web development course is incomplete without a shopping cart project. You will learn the basic cart development process and you can extend the code to build your own online stores. We have used the Spree system for this project.
Content Management System – This is the most complex of the project tackled in the course. This project is a robust content management tool similar to many commercial applications. It will refresh all the techniques and processes learn in this course.
If you successfully build and improve on the projects covered in this course you will be able to undertake and complete any project in ROR. So come aboard be be the Rails Ninja..
