This presentation first introduces the fundamental concepts of Ruby with a particular focus on language features that are important to effectively use and understand the Ruby on Rails application framework.
Building on the basic introduction to Ruby we'll tour the Rails Way of web application development touching topics such as Active Record, Rails MVC, html, generators, and the development lifecycle.
The presentation will close with an open discussion & questions.
