I strongly believe that the best way to learn to code is by building something from scratch. Code snippets and books are great, but you truly learn when you are doing. This course will show you how to build a classifieds website, starting at the "rails new" command. You will get a basic understanding of the MVC structure of Rails, a general grasp of Ruby, and have something to show for it in the end! Oh, no scaffolds here. When I say scratch, it truly is from scratch!
The course will not be covering installation of Ruby/Rails. There are many fantastic tutorials that walk you through those steps. The focus here is to get your hands dirty and dive straight into the code. I will not be covering HTML/CSS, which is why I've provided the markup and styling for you in separate files! Please download them so you can follow along and add them to your project.
TDD/BDD will also not be covered. While these are fantastic conventions when working on a production-level application, the value cannot be appreciated if you're new to programming. It adds unnecessary complexity and the goal is to learn Ruby/Rails, which is why this course will not be covering testing. Who this course is for:
- Beginners looking to learn Ruby on Rails
I'm a self taught programmer who has learned everything I know from my peers or online resources (including Udemy). I'm hoping to give back to the community by teaching what I've learned to others to spread the knowledge.
I take on the more practical approach. Instead of going through theory, I like to be more hands-on and start building things from the start. It's how I learned and I think it works best when people work on real projects instead of going through textbook-style exercises.
