In the course Ruby on Rails Programming, participants learn to develop Web applications with the Model View Controller (MVC) Framework Ruby on Rails. Rails is a framework for pragmatically developing a full-blown web application. Rails applications are based on the principle of convention over configuration. Templates can be generated automatically for many parts of the application, after which the template code can be further extended.
The Ruby on Rails Programming course starts with an explanation of the directory structure of Rails applications. Also discussed are using the Ruby Console, the principles of Rails Routing and installing Ruby Gems.
Then attention is paid to how Ruby Model classes can be generated and how these maps on database tables. Explained is how Database Migrations are created from the model classes that can create database tables with create queries. Many applications require the CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) Pattern which is treated as well.
User input in Web Applications mostly comes from Forms and the Ruby on Rails Programming course discusses Form Creation with the Forms Builder and form helpers. Form validation and handling of errors are also covered.
Next attention is paid to Object Relational Mapping in Ruby on Rails with Active Records. In the application, the developers usually then do not have to write SQL statements, since the SQL statements are generated by the Framework.
Also covered is how views are created in Ruby on Rails based on templates controlled by Action Controllers. Explained is how View paths can be modified with Prepend and Append.
Finally, some advanced topics are discussed such as security, the creation and handling of Rest APIs, as well as caching, performance and troubleshooting.
The course Ruby on Rails Programming is intended for developers who want to develop applications with the new state of art framework Ruby on Rails or Rails.
Basic programming experience and knowledge of the Ruby Programming language is required. Knowledge of web standards such as HTTP and HTML is an advantage.
The theory is discussed on the basis of presentation slides. The concepts are illustrated with demos. The theory is interspersed with exercises. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate Ruby on Rails Programming after successful completion of the course.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
