Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL Class Slides

In August I taught a course titled Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL - Intro to Advanced in Greenville over the span of 3 weeks. Here is the compilation of slides from the class.

If there is any material in the slides that isn't properly attributed, please point it out and I will be happy to add it properly. Many of the images and references are from other presentations I've given where attribution and links were included, however, I did not audit these slides.

Day 1 - Intro to Ruby


Day 2 - Intro to Rails


Day 3 - Intro to PostgreSQL


Day 4 - Rails Models


Day 5 - Diving into Controllers

No slides from day 5, just hands on coding.


Day 6 - PostGIS


Day 7 - Make it Fast


Day 8 - jRuby


Day 9 - PostgreSQL and Application Architecture

About Me

My name is Barry Jones and Brightball, Inc was my contract development company from 2008-2012. Although I no longer do contract work this site has become my personal blog.

If you enjoy my writing and want to support the habit please use my referrals to help me pay for my servers with Digital Ocean, my DNS with DNS Made Easy, my email with Sendwithus and my focus with Freedom.

You're also welcome to buy some things that I highly recommend, such as the best movie ever made, a hilarious cookbook for microwave dependent men like myself, the best travel laptop backpack I've ever owned, an awesome lap desk, some of the best headphones out there for the money or maybe an iPad Mini for the kids?

If you just came here to learn by all means keep it up. Grab a book on Elixir, Phoenix, Go, encryption throughout history, hacking stories or running a business. Thanks!
