- [Voiceover] My name is Kevin Skoglund. Welcome to Ruby on Rails Essential Training. In this course we're going to learn this popular open source web development framework. We will walk through each part of the framework while we also cover best practices and real world web development techniques. We will route browser requests to controller actions that return dynamic page content. We will learn to interact with the database and to manage the database schema. We will walk through the steps that go into creating, reading, updating, and deleting database records.

We will discover how to work with relational database associations effectively. We will learn about Rail's built in helpers, form validations, and security protections. And throughout the process, we will gain practical hands-on experience by building a complete Ruby on Rails application; a content management system. Let's get started learning Ruby on Rails.
