Modeling data with ActiveRecord
We'll start by creating a simple two-table relational database using migrations, then dig into some of the features ActiveRecord gives us to manipulate that data in an application.
This is a beginner-friendly class, but should also be great for students of all levels.
Before class, please make sure you have Ruby and Rails installed. Click here for more information about installing Rails. Also, learn a little about how relational databases work if you are not already familiar. The Wikipedia article is a great start.

Be sure to complete the following Codewars challenge before class!
(If your RailsSchool profile includes your Codewars username, you'll get
a nifty star if you complete the challenge.)
