Course Overview
Hello there. I'm Anthony Alampi. I'm the owner of X Factor Consultants, a Texas‑based digital design and web consulting company. There are a number of different MVC frameworks to choose from when designing web projects, but none are as popular as Ruby on Rails. This course is meant to help you learn the basics of working with Rails by creating a simple wiki web app. This is a beginner Rails course, but experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are required. We'll talk about how to set up a new Rails instance, create both static and dynamic pages, upload images, work with flash memory and database migrations, and much more. Once you've completed this course, you should feel comfortable creating simple Rails apps and taking the other courses in the Rails learning path. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about Ruby on Rails with the Ruby on Rails: Getting Started course at Pluralsight.
