Rails has rapidly become one of the world's most popular web development frameworks. But Rails can be challenging - and, until now, there's been no good way to learn modern Rails development from the ground up. Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial and LiveLesson Video Bundle fills that gap. Leading Rails expert Michael Hartl teaches today's Rails best practices by walking readers through the construction of a complete application - from start to finish. This book/DVD-based video training package shows developers how to take full advantage of the latest Rails 3.2 innovations - including techniques that make Rails development easier and more accessible. Hartl covers all facets of application design and implementation, addressing issues ranging from content management and e-commerce to CRM and Railscasts. Developers see each technique in real-world context, motivated by realistic problems. Hartl introduces new concepts at just the right pace, moving from the basics through advanced topics. The book contained in this bundle is Ruby on Rails Tutorial, 2/e, ISBN 9780321832054.
