Ruby On Rails

Ruby on Rails classes at the Digital Workshop CenterWhy should I learn Ruby on Rails? Ruby on Rails (or “Rails” for short), is an increasingly popular framework for building websites by combining the Ruby language with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create an application that runs on a web server.  Ruby on Rails, compared to similar programming languages such as Java, is streamlined and requires less code for basic structures.

Completing the Ruby on Rails course at Digital Workshop Center will give you the skills needed to develop and deploy a Ruby on Rails application. This course teaches you the major components of the Ruby on Rails frameworks and provides practical examples that can be applied to your own Rails application.

In addition, this course will cover current industry practices and provide helpful resources for furthering your Ruby on Rails education. The course is comprised of 35 hours of classroom instruction, with approximately 70-100 hours of independent study. Each student will be asked to complete a portfolio project as a showcase of their new Ruby on Rails knowledge.

Class Objective: You will create and execute advanced scripts using Ruby on Rails to complete project-based examples.

Target Student: This course is intended for students who are familiar in developing web pages; students should be proficient in writing HTML and CSS code, as well as basic understanding of internet browsers.
