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.

Learn to build real, working apps in Ruby for just $49.
