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 is my consulting company. We help business leaders understand the long term effects of their technical decisions as well as navigating the process of interviewing software developers.

I also blog about technical topics quite a bit. 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 and my email with Sendwithus.

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!
