Ruby on Rails Development

Rails is a web application development framework written in the Ruby language. It is designed to make programming web applications easier by making assumptions about what every developer needs to get started. It allows you to write less code while accomplishing more than many other languages and frameworks. Experienced Rails developers also report that it makes web application development more fun.

Rails is opinionated software. It makes the assumption that there is a "best" way to do things, and it's designed to encourage that way - and in some cases to discourage alternatives. If you learn "The Rails Way" you'll probably discover a tremendous increase in productivity. If you persist in bringing old habits from other languages to your Rails development, and trying to use patterns you learned elsewhere, you may have a less happy experience.

Advantages of Ruby on Rails

Powerful and Simple
Ruby on Rails (or more simply, Rails) is the web development framework that questioned prior assumptions and opened up a new way to create web applications that emphasized simplicity and productivity.

Developing in Rails means:

  • a lot less code
  • a lot less configuration data
  • bringing up basic functionality quickly
  • building out new functionality incrementally
  • integrated testing

There are three principles behind Rails:

Don't repeat yourself! (abbreviated DRY): every element of the web application has its specific place and doesn't have to be repeated multiple times across files.
Convention over configuration: by using practical conventions, most configuration data can be eliminated (however the conventions can be overridden with configuration when necessary).
Quick turn-around time: by providing an integrated web server and an interpreted language, the results of code modifications can be seen immediately, thereby minimizing the code-debug cycle (with no additional compile step).
