Ruby on Rails
An Introduction
Did you ever want to build a web application? Perhaps you even started down that path in a language like Java or C#, when you realized that there was so much “climbing the mountain” that you had to do? Maybe you have heard about web services being all the rage, but thought they were too complicated...

HTML, CSS, and Javascript for Web Developers
Do you realize that the only functionality of a web application that the user directly interacts with is through the web page? Implement it poorly and, to the user, the server-side becomes irrelevant! Today’s user expects a lot out of the web page: it has to load fast, expose the desired service, an...

What would you recommend for learning webdev stuff?

So Over the summer I've taken a class online with my dad, "Python for Everybody" on Coursera, and while I completed the course and have very little experience in other languages (Java, Visual Basic) it seems that everybody within 200 miles of me is looking for web developers. To be honest I'm 27 and was in and out of college but ran out of funding and I'm tired of my hospitality career. I've been looking around for developer classes online and I've seen a few that look interesting but I'm not sure where to start.

There's the Web Developer Bootcamp on Udemy which is pretty cheap and looks like it offers a lot of great information.

On Coursera there's the Full Stack Web Development from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Web Design for Everybody from the University of Michigan, Ruby on Rails Web Development from Johns Hopkins that all look like they'll provide a great learning experience, but are kinda expensive.

Looking around on here, I've seen The Odin Project which looks interesting as well, and free?

My dad really likes Coursera because it comes through universities and completion gives you a certificate that you can show off, which for someone who has yet to graduate would look good.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm just looking for a little perspective before shelling out money/time. Anyway, thanks for reading and any help/advice.

Masters vs Coursera?

Hey there, I’ve been looking at data science jobs and realize I don’t have the proper qualifications. I graduated last May with a Math degree and a minor in computer science. I have learned a little bit of R and a decent amount of Java. But I feel like I need to learn more data science. I was considering doing an online Masters at Johns Hopkins (part time) and found that they have an online Coursera program that teaches ruby, SQL, and some other things. This program is around 10 months as opposed to the probably 4 years it would take me to get my masters while working. Also, Coursera is only $50/month as opposed to about $50k in tuition.

So my question is, is it worth getting my masters or would I be able to start applying for entry level jobs with the qualifications I get from this Coursera class? I’ll post a link to the class below. Thanks in advance for all the help. https://www.coursera.org/specializations/ruby-on-rails?action=enroll

Is this course worth it?

Costs around $420 which is quite a sum. Is it worth it? Does anyone take it into account when hiring you?

CS50 web programming, ruby on rails web development from JHU, freecodecamp, or the Ordin project?

I am interested in web development and hope to become a full-stack developer. I would like to choose one of the following courses to focus on. Which one is more complete and worthwhile?

  1. CS50 web programming offered by Harvard University on edx. I heard some nice things about the course. But it is really inconvenient not have a discussion forum on edx. You have to go somewhere else like reddit or Facebook to ask questions. And people complaining having trouble submitting their projects.

  2. Ruby on rails web development specialization offered by Johns Hopkings University on Coursera. The html, CSS courses on this specialization seems pretty good. Not sure about the other courses. https://www.coursera.org/specializations/ruby-on-rails

  3. The Ordin project.

  4. FreecodeCamp. I tried it a little but one thing annoys me is that they teach you to program on their website, not on your own dev environment.

By the way, I am self taught and have taken MIT 6.001x, 6.002x and several other machine learning courses. I am familiar with Python and know a little about html, css. But no JS background.

Could you guys give me some advice? Thanks!

Piggypacking on this, NodeJS is also great.

You can find tutorials about web applications all over the web, here is one I found.

Best sources to learn Ruby on Rails with good exercises and detailed answers?

I'm a fresh graduated Computer Science major. I'm confident with my C++ but my first job requires me to create a business manager on the web using Ruby on Rails. I just started learning Ruby 2 weeks ago and already got the basic. What is the best source so I can practice some exercises? I need the answers to compare with my solution. Price doesn't matter as the company will pay for the price.

I'm debating within these sources:

Michael Hartl, Ruby on Rails Tutorials, a lot of people recommend this guide for me. I haven't tried but it seems good. Not sure if it provides detailed answers.

https://www.railstutorial.org/

Cousera by Johns Hopkin. Pretty good, but grading takes forever, and no good solution.

https://www.coursera.org/specializations/ruby-on-rails

Odin Project. I think it is a good guide. However, I also feel lost and I don't think this is for me

https://www.theodinproject.com/courses/ruby-on-rails

​

It would be great if someone can help me pick the best out of these three or at least give me a good comparison. Thanks in advance.

Best programming language to learn to make Duolingo style gamified learning app

Hello,

I'm a professor and a beginner programmer. I am currently working my way through Stanford's intro programming courses, which teach in Java and C++. But I am hoping to eventually create a gamified learning app for some of the content I teach my students, as I have some good ideas for structured ways of helping my students learn.

However, there are so many programming languages that it's difficult to know where to go from here after I learn the basics. My end goal would be to make some sort of application similar to Duolingo that my students could work their way through. I originally was going to learn Swift to make iPhone apps, but I thought that not all my students would have iPhones. So I thought perhaps learning to make a web app might be better.

Right now, I thought that perhaps going through either of these two courses might be a good idea next:

1.) https://www.coursera.org/specializations/ruby-on-rails

2.) https://www.edx.org/microsoft-professional-program-front-end-development

I was leaning towards the first given that it teaches more than just front-end programming, but I'll admit that I'm just guessing that I'll need to use back-end programming.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to which route I should take? Or if there's some route I'm not thinking of? I'm prepared to put in the time, and recognize this might take a while. I just don't want to put in 6 months of work for nothing! (Even if I do really enjoy the coding I've been doing so far!)

Thanks for any help you can offer!
