Introduction to Developing with Ruby on Rails

In this webinar we will start creating a full-featured web application using the Ruby on Rails framework. In order to accomplish this we will be leveraging a number of tools in addition to Rails—Heroku for easily deploying to the Internet, and then GitHub for our version control management system. This session will conclude with us creating the app and pushing the code to a centralized Github repository, along with learning how to use the Unix terminal commands.
