Project Description

SnapIT provides trainings in a handful of different programming languages, with Ruby on Rails being one of our most popular. It’s one of the most powerful and versatile programming languages in the world and is used by technology companies large and small. In the grand scheme of things, this would be considered a little more beginner level than other languages, making it a solid choice to get into should this be your first attempt at writing code.

Before we get into too many details about Ruby on Rails, let’s talk brass tacks! This course and career path will be harder than others we provide, such as Salesforce or Project Management. BUT, its difficulty is what will create the most total career opportunities and job security. Why? Because solid computer programmers are hard to find, train, and replace. Simply put: there is a shortage of computer programmers, meanwhile, the growth and necessity of software development is skyrocketing.

What Is Ruby On Rails?

Like Java, Ruby is a general-purpose language best known for web programming. It is an open-source web development framework, which provides developers a timesaving alternative to developing code. Rails combines the Ruby programming language with JavaScript, CSS, and HTML to develop apps that execute on a web server. Ruby on Rails is considered a back-end web application development platform.

Ruby combines some of the best features of other programming languages. Combined with its Web Framework, Ruby on Rails is possibly one of the most disruptive server side web frameworks in the industry. This course provides you with the necessary tools to succeed as a Junior Web Developer. Some of the largest software projects in the industry use it; Twitter and Github, just to name a few.

Additionally, this course will go over the basic fundamentals of the Ruby language, as well as the Ruby on Rails framework, while utilizing Object Oriented Programming (OOP) concepts. This course will utilize version control, which is used in the industry to track work, and provide a mechanism for restoring lost code.

This course will also teach students three pillars of OOP and utilize them in design patterns. Design patterns will take these fundamentals and put them into real-world use to solve problems. Along with these, they will also learn the Software Development Lifecycle, so they know what it takes to create powerful applications.
