About this class

Have you ever wanted to build the "Airbnb/Uber/Instagram/Twitter of __________”? Then you’ve not only wanted to build a website but you’ve actually wanted to build a webapp! Ruby on Rails is the webapp-building technology that jumpstarted billion-dollar companies like Airbnb and Twitter. In this class, software engineer and GA Back-End Web Development instructor Hubert Lee takes you through the basics of Ruby on Rails and gets you started on understanding how this powerful framework can help you think critically about your app idea.

Ruby on Rails is a web development tool which gives developers the structure they need to create a functioning website in minutes. The Rails framework provides tools to automate repetitive tasks and smart defaults to eliminate time wasted configuring a new website. Rails is written in the Ruby programming language. Developers love Ruby because of its elegance and terseness, while at the same time providing the same powerful features available in other programming languages.
