In this tome subtitled "Learn Web Development with Rails", Michael Hartl teaches Rails by guiding you through the development of three example applications of increasing sophistication. The tutorial's examples focus on the general principles of web development needed for virtually any kind of website. The updates to this edition include full compatibility with Rails 7.
The book provides integrated tutorials not only for Rails, but also for the Ruby, HTML, CSS, and SQL skills you need when developing web applications. Hartl explains how each new technique solves a real-world problem, and then he demonstrates it with bite-sized code that's simple enough to understand while still being useful.
