Active Storage


Learn the basics of how Rails allows you to upload files to a cloud storage service like Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, or Microsoft Azure Storage then attaching those files to Active Record objects.

We are going to build a simple web application that allow users to store files to a cloud storage service.

• Rails 5.2 So, please upgrade to the latest version
• Code editor (I will be using RubyMine)
• Storage Cloud Account ( Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, or Microsoft Azure Storage)

• What is Active Storage?
• Why use Active Storage?
• Build basic app together with uploading capability
• Enable app to connect to Storage Cloud Account *if time allows

• We will not go into comparing Active Storage with existing solutions, be it CarrierWave, Paperclip or Shrine, but rather try to make a beginner-friendly introduction to the framework
• Due to time, we won't be able to go through each storage cloud example of setting up Active Storage
