Introduction to Ruby on Rails

Dan Pickett, Founder of Launchware

Thursday, October 18th from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Do you dream of someday writing software applications? Are you a nontechnical founder, interested in learning the basics of software development? Or a web developer, interested in the technical benefits of adopting Ruby on Rails?  

This class will give students an overview of Ruby on Rails development - we'll walk through the anatomy of a Ruby on Rails web application, and we'll cover some core concepts along the way. 
In particular, students will discuss the Model View Controller (MVC) design pattern, explore the filesystem of an actual Rails application, and build a small, database-backed application with the ability to create, retreive, update, and delete database records.
