Domain: Tech

Interested in learning Ruby on Rails, but you don’t know where to start? Here’s your chance to solve that problem. Intended for beginners, this workshop will help teach you to code and deploy a simple app in just two hours. By connecting your app to a database, you’ll be able to update, edit, and delete info. Then you’ll set it free by deploying to Heroku so that everyone in the world can check in and see just how far your Rails skills have come.

Student Takeaways:

  • How to model and implement a solution to a problem using Rails.
  • What models, controllers, and views are.
  • What routes are and how to use them.
  • How your models relate to the database underneath.
  • Understand database schemas and how “migrate” makes them a breeze.
  • Output your data into a view.
  • Style views with basic HTML/CSS.
  • Find out what Heroku is and how to deploy your first app.

Student should have a basic knowledge of general coding concepts such as variables, database connections, and running a server.
