Back in 2005, David Heinemeier Hansson released a screencast showing how to create a blog in 15 minutes with his new Ruby on Rails framework. It created a stir in the web development community, as it was by far the easiest way to get a custom application up and running. 8 years later, things haven't changed that much. Rails is still one of the most powerful and flexible frameworks available. It works a little differently under the hood, though.
This talk updates that original blog demo to work with Rails 4. We're also going to pack in lots of extra information about how Rails works. This talk won't make you an expert, but you'll have an excellent idea of what Rails can do for you. You'll also have some useful resources to get you started creating your own web apps.
