Used by sites as diverse as Twitter, GitHub, Disney, and the Yellow Pages, Ruby on Rails is one of the most popular frameworks for developing web applications, but it can be challenging to learn and use. Whether you’re new to web development or new only to Rails, Ruby on Rails™ Tutorial, Fourth Edition, is the solution.

Best-selling author and leading Rails developer Michael Hartl teaches Rails by guiding you through the development of three example applications of increasing sophistication, focusing on the fundamental techniques in web development needed for virtually any kind of application. The updates to this edition include simplified installation via a standard development environment in the cloud, use of the default Rails stack throughout, a light-weight testing approach, an all-new section on image upload, and an all-new chapter on account activation and password resets, including sending email with Rails.

This indispensable guide provides integrated tutorials not only for Rails, but also for the essential Ruby, HTML, CSS, and SQL skills you’ll need when developing web applications. Hartl explains how each new technique solves a real-world problem, and then he demonstrates it with bite-sized code that’s simple enough to understand, yet novel enough to be useful. Whatever your previous web development experience, this book will guide you to true Rails mastery.

This book will help you:

  • Install and set up your Rails development environment, including a pre-installed integrated development environment (IDE) in the cloud
  • Go beyond generated code to truly understand how to build Rails applications from scratch
  • Learn testing and test-driven development (TDD)
  • Effectively use the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern
  • Structure applications using the REST architecture
  • Build static pages and transform them into dynamic ones
  • Master the Ruby programming skills all Rails developers need
  • Create high-quality site layouts and data models
  • Implement registration and authentication systems, including validation and secure passwords
  • Update, display, and delete users
  • Upload images in production using a cloud storage service
  • Implement account activation and password reset, including sending email with Rails
  • Add social features and microblogging, including an introduction to Ajax
  • Record version changes with Git and create a secure remote repository at Bitbucket
  • Deploy your applications early and often with Heroku
