Ruby on Rails is the best way for beginners to learn how to build their own web applications and comes with all the advantages of power, agility, and robustness used to build the top websites on the planet.

What Will I Learn?

Ruby on Rails has proven to be an effective and efficient way to tackle the programming puzzle. This course will use the Ruby on Rails web application framework as a basis for teaching students how to be a competent, well versed software developer. DaVinci Coders students will:

Ruby on Rails uses the Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern to effectively separate the user interface from business logic in code. DaVinci Coders will explore this MVC pattern from the top down:

By comprehending how models and controllers function and interact, students will have a firm grasp of the Ruby on Rails framework.

As students’ progress through the course they will learn how to write and execute automated tests for the code they create. This will provide them with the confidence to know that their application is doing the correct thing even when further experimental code and features are added. Students will be doing this repeatedly as they follow an agile approach to software development, the same process that they will encounter as a professional developer.

Most importantly DaVinci Coders will focus on solving problems like a seasoned programmer would. By emphasizing the process of thinking like a software developer, students will be able to deal with problems that they haven’t encountered before while still being able to meet deadlines and achieve set goals.
