Starting with Ruby on Rails
This training will help you get started with Ruby and the Rails MVC framework. The first half of the day will focus on the basics of the Ruby programming language. The second half of the day will be focused on the Rails framework and tools for interacting with PostgreSQL and taking advantage of some of it's advanced features. You will learn how to start building an application that will expose you to the Rails framework, and that you can take home and continue to polish and learn.
This training targets those new to Ruby and Rails development who have previous experience with an object-oriented programming language.
