Ruby on Rails is the language that powers most of the web apps you use every day. If you’re looking to get involved in web development, learning Ruby is a wise and lucrative move. BaseRail’s in-depth training teaches you to build working, deployable apps, offering critical hands-on experience that normally goes for thousands of dollars, but right now you can get it for $49 at Cult of Mac Deals.
Across 20 hours of content divided among 4 courses, you’ll build as many fully operative web applications that you can then launch live on the web. Build a restaurant review site, a two-sided marketplace (for buyers and sellers), a web scraper to collect data, and an apartment rental site a la Craigslist. After they’re built, you’ll learn to customize your projects. You’ll also learn how to gather data through an API and use that data to build a custom Ruby on Rails web app, and how to automate data collection processes and get an app to live on Heroku.
