The Complete Ruby on Rails Developer Course provides a thorough introduction to Web Applications Development using the wildly popular Ruby on Rails framework. With 36+ hours of engaging video lectures and text follow-up lectures with directions, references and all the code used in the videos, this course is designed to:
Take students with no prior programming or web application development experience to accomplished web application developers specializing in Ruby on Rails.
Give students with prior experience in Ruby on Rails or web development a leg up in the industry by helping them learn the ins and outs of back-end development with Rails and building complex apps at will.
Give professionals and students alike the avenue by which they can switch to Ruby on Rails as the back-end development framework of choice so they can build robust web apps in very quick time and bring their ideas to life.
Current web apps built in the course (5):
Sections 4 - 7: Alpha blog - CRUD functions, multiple resources, authentication system built from scratch, front-end using Bootstrap, one-to-many and many-to-many associations at DB layer, production deployment! Compatible with both Rails 4 and 5 (with repositories on each version)
Section 8: Finance Tracker social media app - Learning to use Devise for authentication, scaffold generators, search forms, ajax, jquery, search functionality, external API (stock prices) usage, rapid prototyping. Compatible with both Rails 4 and 5 (repositories on each version)

Ruby on Rails - introduced 13 years ago - continues to be the cool but stable framework of choice for startups since it allows for rapid development - while maintaining structure and security - as complex and disruptive business ideas are brought to life in record time.
This course takes a very structured approach of teaching Rails starting with Ruby - the programming language behind Rails. Everything from “Hello World” to Object Oriented Programming is covered. Students acquire skills rapidly; utilizing homework assignments, quizzes, coding exercises and free web based resources to go with the video lectures. The text lectures also provide reference material after each video, it’s like having multiple books in addition to the videos to guide students through the course.
At first all the code is done from scratch limiting the use of shortcuts and generators so students can understand what’s really going on under the hood of Rails applications and can design them the way they want. Then with solid knowledge and understanding already in place, rapid prototyping methods are introduced in later parts of the course, showing use of generators and scaffolding, finishing with a complete Software as a Service Application that can be used to launch a startup!
Some key features of this course are:
250+ lectures and 36+ hours of video content
Ruby programming from scratch; writing your first program to say “Hello World” to Object Oriented Programming while building multiple mini-projects along the way
Rails 4 & 5 using both cloud-based Integrated Development Environment and local development environments
Local installation and development options made available for both Macs and Windows machines (that’s right, Windows as well!)
