Welcome to Ruby on Rails Essential Training. My name is Kevin Skoglund. I run a web developing company called Nova Fabrica, where we develop applications and web sites using Ruby on Rails. In this course, we are going to learn Ruby on Rails, the popular open source web development framework. We will learn how to use Ruby on Rails to interact with the database and manage our database schema. We will learn how to handle browser requests and control the resulting actions. I will walk you through the steps to develop templates to create, read, update, and delete database records, and we'll discover how to work with relational database associations effectively.
Finally, you will gain practical hands- on experience by building a complete Ruby on Rails application, a simple content management system. Now, it doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or if you have some prior experience. We'll cover all the fundamentals you need to begin creating rich web applications that can leverage the power of relational databases. So let's get started learning Ruby on Rails.
