This course covers all you need to get started with building Web applications with Ruby on Rails. It takes you from basic material on the best practices that are embedded into the Rails framework, through to advanced material on developing real time applications with Rails.
The course contains screen casts and practical examples. We show you how to get coding right away using Nitrous - a cloud based development environment. So there is no need to spend time on the tedious business of installing tools on your own machine.
I am not a full-time teacher. My courses are informed by extensive real-world application development both in industry and academia. So I teach you what works in practice, and by following this course you will benefit from my 35 years' experience in a wide range of software engineering projects.
Paul Krause is Professor in Complex Systems at the University of Surrey. Prior to moving to his full-time Professorship in 2003, he was a Senior Principle Scientist at Philips Electronics. During his time at Philips he consulted widely with their global software development teams in Bruges, Eindhoven, Vienna, Bangalore and Singapore. He also wrote and delivered training courses on a wide range of advanced software development techniques both to individual teams and at the Global Philips Software Conference.
Prof. Krause was one of the authors of the first versions of the British Computer Society’s Information System Examination Board’s Foundation and Practioner’s Software Testing syllabuses. He is Editor (Computing and Software) of the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s Journal of Engineering, and a Guest Mentor at Coding House, CA.
He has travelled widely in Europe, Africa and Asia both for pleasure and for work. This has given him a broader perspective than just the technical aspects of his work.
