Rails is a robust, flexible development platform that lets you build complex websites quickly. Major websites like GitHub, Hulu, and Twitter have run Rails under the hood, and if you know just enough HTML and CSS to be dangerous, Rails Crash Course will teach you to harness Rails for your own projects and create web applications that are fast, stable, and secure.
In Part I, you'll learn Ruby and Rails fundamentals and then dive straight into models, controllers, views, and deployment.
In Part II, you'll take your skills to the next level as you build a social networking app with more advanced Ruby tools, such as modules and metaprogramming, and advanced data modeling techniques within Rails's Active Record.
Each chapter is packed with hands-on examples and exercises to reinforce what you've learned. Whether you're completely new to Ruby or you've been mucking around for a bit, Rails Crash Course will take you from the basics to shipping your first Rails application, fast.
