Course description

Ruby Programming & Ruby on Rails

Ruby is a high level Interpreted, Object Oriented, rapid development language deployed in many scenarios in the modern world.

This Ruby Programming & Ruby on Rails course is designed to give delegates the knowledge to develop and maintain Ruby applications and Rails based projects.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

Skills Gained

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Declare variables and initialise them
  • Construct expressions with arithmetic, logical and relational operators
  • Use iterative type statements
  • Use conditional statements
  • Read/write files
  • Manipulate text using regular expression
  • Use and create Ruby Objects
  • Use built-in library functions
  • Work with REST and describe the purpose of REST and the Rails MVC architecture
  • Use RAILS and describe the purpose of Rails Routes
  • Create a project using Ruby and Rails
  • Create and customise a Rails Application using scaffold and the SQLite3 database
Who will the Course Benefit?

Developers who are required to write, maintain and test Ruby applications and projects based on Ruby on Rails.

Course Objectives

This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to produce simple, object oriented Ruby applications, and develop and maintain Rails based projects that exploit all core elements of the language to solve business problems.

Requirements

Delegates attending this course should have some previous programming experience and be able to define general programming concepts including: compilation, execution, variables, arrays, sequence, selection, iteration, functions, objects, and classes. Moreover delegates should be able to navigate the filesystem (on the command line ideally), edit and save text files and browse the web. This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the pre-requisite Introduction to Programming course.

Overall the course was great, brilliant as a reinforcement tool for my Ruby and a great learning experience for Rails, which took me from not being able to use it to being able to get a functional CRUD interface and database for a fictional company.
