Building web applications has become the status quo when learning to program, and Ruby is evermore prevalent due to the popularity of Rails. Even though Rails transformed the way we build web applications, I'm here to tell you: If you're trying to learn Ruby by learning Rails, you're doing it all wrong.
In this talk I'll show you how to take simple Ruby objects and turn them into working Ruby web applications. Then we'll build on our app by tapping into the thriving ecosystem of Ruby tools which allow us to take our ideas to the next level and simplify our process. In the end, we'll have a suite of applications that truly embody modular design.
