Course Overview:

If you are already using Rails, get under the hood of Rails and learn Ruby. Rails is a web applications developement framework based on the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture which uses Ruby as its programming language. With this course you will learn Ruby itself so you can make your Rails applications even more powerful. In this course you will learn how Ruby and Rails work and learn the building blocks of Ruby: objects, variables, classes, modules and programs. You will learn to use the built-in classes and modules to build an application. You will need a webserver running Ruby, Rails and a database application. These are available for free and the course includes instructions for installing them.

ATTENTION: This course has a strict start and end date.  When a student enrolls into this course, they will need to work with one of our Training Assessment Managers (TAMs) to choose a start date before they can be enrolled in their course.
