Rails Crash Course

San Francisco, CA (October 2, 2014) — Ruby on Rails revolutionized web development, fueling an incredible number of startups and new technologies. Today, the Rails revolution continues, with thousands of aspiring developers looking to begin (or change!) their careers by using Rails to make the “next big thing.”

In Rails Crash Course (No Starch Press, Oct 2014, 296 pp., $34.95), author Anthony Lewis offers a clear and concise guide that makes creating web applications a snap. Lewis takes readers with only the barest HTML and CSS experience from Rails basics through the release of a robust application.

A seasoned developer and Rails instructor, Lewis jump-starts readers with an introduction to the Ruby programming language and then gets them up to speed with Rails by covering the essentials of app creation and deployment. Once they know how to create a simple app, readers move on to advanced Ruby tools and sophisticated real-world applications, like building a Tumblr-style social networking app.

Some of the world's best-loved websites (think GitHub and Hulu) have been built on Rails. With demand for Rails developers as high as ever, Rails Crash Course is the ultimate way to build Ruby on Rails expertise quickly.

Rails Crash Course will be in bookstores everywhere this October.
