If you’re a web developer or designer ready to learn Ruby on Rails, this hands-on guide is the ideal way to get started. Rather than toss you into the middle of the framework’s Model-View-Controller architecture, as many books do, Learning Rails 5 begins with the foundations of the Web you already know. You’ll learn how to create something visible with Rails’ view layer before diving into the more difficult inner layers: the database models and controller code. All you need to begin your Rails journey is HTML experience. Each chapter includes exercises and review questions to test your understanding as you go. Present content by building an application with a basic view and a simple controller Build forms and process their results, progressing from simple to more complex Use Rails scaffolding and REST to build effective applications quickly Connect forms to models and create code that maps directly to database structures Build applications that combine data from multiple tables Use migrations to track changes to your database over time Add common elements such as sessions, cookies, and authentication

“There’s no question you’re going to be a better Flex and Rails developer when you’re done reading this book.” —From the Foreword by Matt Chotin, Senior Product Manager, Adobe Systems, Inc. Adobe Flex enables the rapid development of rich and engaging user experiences. Ruby on Rails dramatically simplifies the development of database-driven web applications. Now there’s a book that shows how to use the newest versions of both frameworks together to create state-of-the-art Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Flex on Rails begins with the absolute essentials: setting up your environment for Flex and Rails, passing data with XML, and integrating Flex front-ends with Rails back-ends. Then, using practical, easy-to-understand code examples, the authors take you from the basics to advanced topics only discussed in this book. Techniques covered here include Constructing sophisticated interfaces that can’t be created with AJAX alone Using RESTful services to expose applications for access via APIs Testing Flex and Rails together Using Flex Frameworks Getting Flex into your build/deploy process And more… The authors also offer practical introductions to powerful complementary technologies, such as RubyAMF and Juggernaut. Written by developers with extensive experience using both frameworks, this book covers the new Adobe Flex 3 and Ruby on Rails 2 from the ground up. Even if you have minimal experience with Flex or Rails, you’ll learn all you need to know to use them to build exceptional production applications.
