Introduction to Ruby on Rails

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

Sunday 7th October, 2012

1:00pm to 4:30pm (CST)

The Ruby on Rails framework can increase your productivity and happiness. It's right there on the official Rails website so it has to be true, right? In the Office of Geriatrics and Gerontology at The Ohio State University, we have leveraged the principles of high productivity and programmer happiness that Ruby on Rails promises to deliver quality distance education websites. The goal of this workshop is to expose you to the key concepts of the Ruby programming language and the Rails framework that make this possible. This workshop will be split into four parts: 1. Setup a Ruby on Rails Development Environment 2. Basics of the Ruby language constructs 3. RubyGems: reusable Ruby building blocks 4. Basics of Ruby on Rails framework. We will work towards developing a very basic CMS so that, by the conclusion of this workshop, you'll have a solid understanding of Ruby on Rails.
