Ojai, CA (PRWEB) January 26, 2007
lynda.com, the company that has specialized in self-paced training in digital media and design for over a decade, today introduced Ruby on Rails Essential Training.
Ruby on Rails aims to make building web applications simpler. In Ruby on Rails Essential Training, expert instructor Kevin Skoglund focuses on the same goal. He explains the complete process -- from understanding the fundamental concepts behind any Ruby on Rails project to creating full-featured, easy-to-maintain applications using the Ruby on Rails framework. Using the practical project of building an online store as an example, Skoglund teaches the basics of the Ruby language. He also covers how to design an application, how to build dynamic interfaces, how to structure and interact with databases, how to create a working shopping cart, and how to regulate user access with passwords. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"Ruby on Rails is one of the most quickly adopted and widely heralded new web programming languages. Kevin Skoglund's practical, concise, and clear training style will help legions of newcomers get up and running quickly and efficiently," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Anyone with an internet connection can access Ruby on Rails Essential Training by subscribing to lynda.com's Online Training Library™. A separate DVD version of Ruby on Rails Essential Training is scheduled for release later this month.
