Summary

This chapter started with a whirlwind tour of Ruby on Rails. You have hopefully grown to appreciate some of the magic that Rails offers web developers and how much fun it can be developing a Rails app. We have also spent some time discovering how easy it is to use CoffeeScript in a Rails app, and the different approaches and techniques you would typically use to write client-side code.

If you haven't done so already, I encourage you to spend some more time learning Rails as well as Ruby, and immersing yourself in the wonderful communities they support.

In the next chapter, we'll explore yet another new exciting server framework that was built using JavaScript, and how CoffeeScript relates to it.
