Description
Through test-driven and exploratory development, you will become familiar with ActiveRecord, including associations. You will gain an understanding of the SQL implicitly written through your Ruby code. You will learn about customizing views, view helpers, routes and controller actions and understand the log file. After taking this class there should be nothing magical about scaffold. A book will be provided. There will be homework assignments that include both reading and writing code.
Note: We'll be using Rails 3 for class, but I will review the differences with Rails 2, so you will be able to work on an older project if needed.
Prerequisite: you should know Ruby already or be signed up for the Ruby class. If you are unsure of your skill level, I can send you a set of rspec tests that if you can make them pass you know enough Ruby to take the class.
