Rapid Prototyping with Rails Generators
Based on feedback from some students asking "how does it all come together?", in this class we're going to put to use a lot of things we learned to construct a rapid prototype of a facebook newsfeed clone. As we'll see, rails generators are an extremely powerful tool to try out app concepts quickly. We'll touch on how to put together a live mockup or to get to "hackathon level" velocity. Let's give a run through to see how that would be done. This preso is based on a quora posting I read: http://vysakh.quora.com/Making-a-Facebook-clone-using-Rails-in-minimum-time
This class is useful to beginners if they want an overview of Rails strengths and capabilities; to advance beginners who are understanding individual details but would like to see an app put together in rails; to intermediates refreshing them on the power of the "opening game" in rails where its opinionated approach shines.
