    Ruby Nuby Session - Rails Intro Ruby Nuby Session - Rails Intro Presentation Transcript

    • Ruby on Rails From Zero to Hero
    • Who am I? John Barton, Web Developer http://whoisjohnbarton.com http://alltimetop5.com
    • Zero to Hero?
    • What I really mean is the transition between knowing nothing about Rails to having deployed a full application into the wild
    • I thought about putting some hippie slide about learning Rails being a “journey” not a destination and so on. Thankfully I thought better of it and skipped it
    • What is Rails? Why should I learn Rails? How does this “journey” thing go?
    • Rails is...
    • ...an opinionated web framework
    • MVC
    • ActiveRecord takes care of everything you are sick of doing over and over and over again
    • Why?
    • productivity
    • maintainability
    • what if I can’t use Rails in production?
    • you will learn best practice via the path of least resistance then apply it at your day job then get annoyed at why your co-workers don’t get it
    • How?
    • Get hands on! Watch the 10 minute blog video Build an app!
    • but....
    • It won’t take long before you hit a wall this wall is called “the Rails way” most things are easy done the Rails way, but it takes a while to grok it
    • Everyone in the Ruby and Rails community has had to go through this transition We want to do everything we can to help you
    • Who am I, again? John Barton, Web Developer http://whoisjohnbarton.com http://alltimetop5.com
