Ruby on Rails is a powerful web application framework action packed, with hordes of gems to create a stress-free and complete developing experience. Ruby reinforces the "More with Less" approach with its elegant and clean code, proving to be a stalwart alternative to traditional static languages. Rails 5 introduces a plethora of features and built-in libraries to keep your applications up to date with the modern web.

Introducing to Rails 5 dives deep into creating applications with the newly built in libraries and gems this framework has to offer.

Before you get hands on with coding, the first section explores the changes and deprecations and introduces you to what’s new in RoR5. We then learn the use of Action cable to access Web sockets, which is a built in library to add real-time features to your applications.

We will create our first chatroom with the all in one ‘rails generator’ command to generate all required files for our chat room system including password encryption, session controllers and the main navigation. We will learn to use Rails as a JSON-API Backend that can be consumed by different clients.

The course also covers how Turbolinks optimizes page loading and renders templates independently of controllers.
