Level: Beginner

Since its initial release in 2004, Ruby on Rails has surged in popularity among cutting-edge web developers. And our original Rails tutorial has been a best-seller for three years, establishing PeepCode as the authority on video training for Ruby developers.

Today, Rails developers are in high demand and Rails is widely available on hosting services across the Internet.

Our 75 minute Meet Rails 3 tutorial introduces Rails 3, the result of two years of low-level improvements, API refinements, and performance optimizations. If you are just learning Rails or if you have limited knowledge and want to learn more, this is the video for you!

NOTE: If you’re already experienced with previous versions of Rails, try the Rails 3 Upgrade Handbook.

You’ll learn to:

  • Install Rails on Mac, Windows, or Linux
  • Understand the important parts of the Ruby language
  • Navigate the default directory structure of a Rails application
  • Generate and write view templates
  • Link controllers together and prepare data for views
  • Design, implement, and use data models

This highly-polished screencast will give you a gentle introduction to the ideas that have transformed modern web development.

Available as part of a PeepCode Unlimited subscription (including streaming on our iOS app!) Business plans are also available.

Part II of the Rails 3 tutorial is now available!

Includes a typed transcript.


This screencast starts from scratch and teaches the basics of both the Ruby language and the Rails framework.
