Course Description

Fully up-to-date fall-2017
The Professional Ruby on Rails Developer with Rails 5 is the latest course brought to you by the creators of the best-selling Ruby on Rails course on Udemy! Built by taking 2 years of feedback from thousands of students over multiple Rails courses - it provides the best introduction to Web Applications Development using the wildly popular Ruby on Rails framework. It takes you from beginner to expert in just 8 weeks! With Rails 5 and the introduction of ActionCable you can now build realtime features like chatrooms with ease and we'll show you how! This course is for students of all levels and backgrounds, those who have no experience in programming at all, those who have worked with other web app development frameworks but want to make the switch to or try Ruby on Rails and also for students who have tried Ruby on Rails in the past but want to take their skills to the next level, just to name a few.
Why Ruby on Rails? Since its introduction, Ruby on Rails has rapidly become one of the most powerful tools for building web applications for startups and existing software houses. Some of the top sites using Ruby on Rails are Basecamp, Twitter, Shopify, Github, LivingSocial, Groupon, Hulu, Airbnb, Yellow Pages and much more. It's perfect for entrepreneurs or startups looking to rapidly prototype their ideas and bring them to life.
This course provides a very structured approach of teaching Rails and how to use Rails to implement ideas. It teaches the techniques to make the code work for the student. There will be video lectures, text follow-up lectures after each video lecture, homework, challenge projects and monthly code challenges. There will be references to free resources available on the internet to supplement the course materials. There is also a live chat channel where students from all our Rails courses hangout and help each other out with questions, solutions and general networking!
A big focus of this course is practice and understanding fundamentals. Most of the code is done from scratch limiting the use of shortcuts, generators and absolutely no scaffolding or "magic". This is also accomplished by diving right in and using a pre-configured Ruby on Rails development environment in the cloud eliminating time required to setup a local development environment and the roadblocks that go with it.
Some key aspects of this course are:
- Realtime Chatroom and Comments feature using ActionCable!
- Rails 5 using free cloud-based Integrated Development Environment
- Live chat help from other students, you're joining a community of developers who will help you ease your way in!
- Working with git for version control and github as code repository
- 20 hours of high quality content with text lectures after every video lecture with code and directions
- Help from professional Teaching Assistant in the Q & A section and also in the live chat!
- Rails MVC structure in-depth - Models, Views, Controllers
- Conceptualization and Design
- Building own authentication system from scratch using default Rails stack, including admin feature, log in/logout and signup
- Working with Bootstrap for UI, Amazon Web Services for file/image hosting, Gravatars
- Test Driven Development (TDD) for majority of the application, introduced very early on. Build automated test suite side-by-side with the app featuring model (unit) and feature (integration) tests with the default rails testing framework
- Model and non-model backed forms, implementing like/dislike voting feature
- Migrations, one-to-many and many-to-many associations at the database layer and implementation using Rails and ActiveRecord
- much, much more!Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to build web applications
  • Anyone who wants to build multiple income streams by building projects
  • Anyone who wants to start their own business
  • Anyone who wants to freelance
  • Anyone who wants to be a valued developer in the workforce
  • Anyone who wants to build their dreams and bring them to life

Hi! I'm Rob. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University and you might call me a bit of coding geek.
After building websites for friends and family for fun, I soon learned that web development was a very lucrative career choice. I gave up my successful (and sometimes stressful) job as a teacher to work part time and today, couldn't be happier.
I'm passionate about teaching kids to code, so every summer I run Code School in the beautiful city of Cambridge. I also run the popular web hosting and design service, Eco Web Hosting which leaves me free to share my secrets with people like you.
You wouldn't believe the freedom that being a web developer offers. Sign up and find out for yourself why so many people are taking and recommending this course. I genuinely believe it's the best on the market and if you don't agree, I'll happily refund your money.
Sign up to my courses and join me in this amazing adventure today. Hi, I'm Mashrur, I'm a full-time programming instructor specializing in programming fundamentals, web application development, machine learning and cyber security. I have been a technology professional for over a decade and have degrees in Computer Science and Economics.
My niche is building comprehensive career focused technology courses for students entering new/complex and challenging fields in today's technology space. This is a nice segway for me, since my real passion is building and tinkering with programmin

I miss a chapter on how to install ruby/rails locally so I don't need to use any of the ugly cloud dependend environments.

Muy bien paso a paso, extenso completo y practico

Excellent teacher. Great primer for begginers and shows some pretty neat features and how to implement them. I particularly like that Mashrur takes us through the whole development cycle: build, test and deploy.

What a great course! I am happy I got here!

Buena explicacin del proceso de instalacin y descripcin de la estructura de un proyecto en rails, buen balance entre el desarrollo de la parte sustantiva del proyecto y el diseo, falta explicar un poco mas la sintaxis de los helpers

Very well done, if u want to get basic knowledge about rails, connecting models with each other - 1:M, M:M, how to use rails console, rails views with .erb, ez heroku deploy then take it ;)Why 4.5? Main reason is lack of enough explanation about some rails magic - not bad, could be much better then it would be probably awesome!If u r new to Rails but with some coding experience, then it's perfect. If u have no previous exp with programming then grab some basic programming lessons: html, css, ruby, and then rails ;)Well spent 10$ :D I've learnt a lot about "Rails style" ;) Thanks Mashrur and keep going

I love the very basic and logic overview so far. I knew all of this from intuition and from what I picked up from other sources, but I have never sat down to get an integrated overview like this. Excellent.

Sadly, I'll opt for a refund.1 - I'm visually impaired and enjoy video courses as they not require me to be looking at a white board, and this course does exactly that: makes me sit and watch a guy talk and use a white board, writing words that I can not see.2 - The central app for the course is flawed and has numerous poor design choices, and that's unacceptable.3 - He speaks too slowly so I'm forced to watch the videos in twice the normal speed.

This is a match for what I want to do and polishing up my skills. I took a job that was not in programming and my skills became rusty. My true love, my passion is programming. Dealing with humans = hard. Dealing with code is fun, exciting, logical, engaging, and truly entertaining at times! Great job on the course. Thank you.

The course is a good

Just over a month ago I had no idea how make a web app. My knowledge was basic, I knew how to use Wordpress.After completing this course I have created my first production ready app deployed thru Heroku and using AWS for image hosting.The course is fantastic and the instructor explains the concepts and shows you step by step how to do things.I would recommend anyone who wants to learn Ruby on Rails to invest in this course. This course is the beginning of me developing new skills in Ruby on Rails.I want to personally thank Mashrur for being my instructor and helping me out along the way when I was stuck.Here is my app: again Mashrur and Udemy for this opportunity to learn.

I've been "teaching" myself code for the past 4 years or so. What makes Udemy different from other online learning sites is:(1) the course is up to date - On other sites, I've had to stop a tutorial 1/2 way through because the code within it wasn't current / compatible with current browsers / software.(2) if you have a question, you receive a response very quickly - The most I had to wait was 2 days but most of the time I received an answer next day... mostly from the instructor himself. Thank Mashrur!(3) each vides has an outline of information and code covered within that section - If you ever need to refer back, you can review the outline instead of having to rewind / fast forward the video.Highly recommended.
