Rails for Designers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

RSVP Required - Learn the essential Ruby and Rails needed to transform your designs into working web applications.
Doing so will inform your design decisions, improve your ability to collaborate with back-end developers, empower you to make your ideas real, and be a lot of fun.
We'll start with a static HTML5 mockup of an app, and, step by step, bring it to life until it is dynamic, database-backed, and connected to social APIs.
If you come prepared with a mockup of one of your own ideas, we'll also help you map out how to apply your newly acquired skills to it. We assume no prior programming knowledge except for familiarity with HTML and CSS.
Familiarity with HTML and CSS is assumed. No other programming experience is necessary.
What to Bring:
Participants must bring laptops (Mac, Linux, or Windows).
In addition, try to set up the following tools:
- Ruby and Rails - http://railsapps.github.com/installing-rails.html.
- Git - https://help.github.com/articles/set-up-git
Please also create a free GitHub account.
(Mac users, even though GitHub suggests that you "forget the terminal" and "download [their] native app instead," please follow the instructions on that page to get the command line version set up on your machine.)
- Heroku - https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/heroku-command
Please also create a free Heroku account.
- Sublime Text 2 - http://www.sublimetext.com/2
