Introduction to Ruby on Rails


Ruby on Rails, often simply Rails, is an open source web application framework
which runs on the Ruby programming language. It is a full-stack framework:
it allows creating pages and applications that gather information from
the web server, talk to or query the database, and render templates
out of the box. As a result, Rails features a routing system that is
independent of the web server.

Ruby on Rails emphasizes the use of well-known software engineering patterns
and principles, such as active record pattern, convention over configuration
(CoC), don’t repeat yourself (DRY), and model–view–controller (MVC).

Duration: 45 mins to 1 hour

Prerequisite: Knowledge on HTML, a bit of Javascript and CSS.

For Hands-on, install Ruby On Rails in your laptops and bring.
