COURSE: SURVEY OF RUBY ON RAILS & SQL DATABASES
The goal of the course will be to teach a broad overview of the technologies involved in creating and using Ruby and a Rails back-end. While the intent is simply to impart basic structure and syntax, students with a solid grasp of the material, and additional self-study, will be able to create a very simple operational Rails back-end at the completion of the course.
Cost: $695 ($495 w/ coupon, $369 students)
