This course introduces Rails 3, the result of two years of low-level improvements, API refinements, and performance optimizations. If you are just learning Rails or if you have limited knowledge and want to learn more, this is the video for you!
Meet Rails 3: Part 3 It's PeepCode! This is part two of our Meet Rails 3 series. In part one you learned the bare basics of Ruby on Rails; how to work with data models, how to use controllers simply, and how to write basic view templates. In this screencast, we'll take those ideas a step further by building a web application. It's a simple project manager, capable of managing a project such as the construction of the Death Star, or, depending on your affinity, destroying that same Death Star. Each project manages several people, who will play different roles in the project. It will note when each has last updated their status. You can Create new Roles, change the Status of any Person in the project, Delete a Role, or even Create a New Project altogether. As with all PeepCode screencasts, we'll cover a lot of information in a short period of time. Pause if you need to think about something, or Rewind to watch a section again. Use the Chapter Menu to jump straight to a chapter, or review the completed project if you get stuck. Let's get started! (Typing)
