Building modern web applications
Ruby on Rails is one of the most popular and easy-to-use web development framework. You might have already used applications that were built with this framework. GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb, Basecamp, Twitch, SoundCloud, Hulu, Zendesk, Square, and Highrise are a few big names, but there are thousands of applications built using this framework since its release. If you’re looking forward to creating any such feature-rich applications for the modern web, then this Learning Path is for you.
This Learning Path dives deep into creating applications with the new built-in libraries and gems this framework has to offer. Before you get your hands on coding, you’ll first explore what’s new in RoR5. You’ll then learn to create your first chat room with the all-in-one rails generator command. You’ll also learn to use Rails as a JSON-API backend that can be consumed by different clients. You’ll see how Turbolinks optimizes page loading and renders templates independently of controllers. You’ll learn how to create and configure a Rails 5 application and use its new features such as Rails 5 API and ActionCable.
By the end of the Learning Path, you’ll have a solid understanding of Rails 5 and you should be able to build your own applications in no time!
