Course info

We’ll cover the fundamental concepts necessary to develop a full-featured web application.

Ruby will be the language of choice, in combination with Rails as a web framework. We’ll cover building REST API, data persistence, advanced database queries, user authentication, and MVC architecture.

During the course, you’ll be developing application feature by feature through homework assignments. You’ll be using the Git and Pull Requests through which we’ll review your code and guide you towards becoming a better web developer.

  • Ruby programming language
  • Ruby on Rails web framework
  • Postgres and advanced database queries
  • Git version control
  • OOP and FP programming concepts
  • MVC architecture
