I have played around with Ruby on Rails before but this course really helped me understand the nots and bolts. It is worth replicating all the examples shown in the videos to get a good understanding,
One of the most challenging things I've ever done.\n\nThe course goes from zero to web deploy in 3 weeks and there are more to enjoy, discover and learn....\n\nTry it, I't's a no-return voyage

This course helped me start learning Ruby and RoR. It's a great start. a little outdated. If it gets updated to newer versions of Ruby and RoR, It will be awesome.
It is very much useful to the beginners who are thinking about their career in the software fields.Because this course is very much helpful to get an internships.

Great course with very useful insights and techniques, which would have taken me way more time if I tried to learn and develop it by myself. Totally recommend it.

Lectures are fairly good although they need to be updated. Homework submission is a headache and needs to be updated for the latest versions of gems as well.

Nice Course, well structured.
Only issue faced was with Grader not letting to use Rails 5, please be aware of this and use Rails 4.2.8 and save some time. :)

It was pretty interesting, although it may be fast at times. I find it particular engaging and interesting. I would definitely continue with the next course.

The course was good. But some of the tutorials are outdated and faced some difficulties to understand it. But overall a full package and was resourceful.

Very nice course! However, I felt the the Ruby part of the course was a bit fast paced and short and a little more time should have been spent on it.
Needs to work with rails 5. Actual assignment for RoR isn't that long but making it work with the provided Gem file to pass the graded took a while.

This is a great introduction to ruby. Some of the assignments were tough to get your head around but once we really got into rails it was excellent

I still have some problems with understanding of Ruby lang, but Ruby on Rails is taught excellent! (anyway this course about rails). Good luck!

Great course! Learned a lot I didn't know about Ruby, and of course Rails. Needs updating on the coursera api usage in the httparty section.
By TOON D•
The training was to the point and efficient. External tool dependencies can use an update as not all issues are covered in the wiki sections

Very good introduction to Rails! Well-organized and structured course! Totally worth it if you are a beginner or intermediate rubyist!
By Mario M A•
Excellent explanations however, should be sure of do not make comparisons with other programmatic languages since it cause confusions
By Vishal B•
Overall the course was good. The final assignment had some details missing and found myself struggling for some very trivial issues.
By Boonchu N•
Execellent class for Ruby beginner and can be applicable to any other language that use as CM like Chef or Puppet as a requirement.
By Draden G•
Some of the coding didn't line up with what was in the lectures, the course had a ton of knowledge and was a great introduction.
By chen h•
Good. But as the course is rather short, knowledge is not covered in detail and may easily be forgotten without extra practice.
By Anosha R•
Some course content is outdated as there is a very new version of Rails available now but nonetheless, the intuition is great!
It was a really good course, although a bit 'dry' (lessons were similar to each other and thus tiring in longer perspective).
By Prasad M Z•
The course was really great. It was lengthy but it felt like a pleasant journey. Thank you for providing such a nice course.
To complete the homework, you must understand every word that teacher told in the video. For this course, I spent 3 weeks.
By Sean R•
Good course but incompatible with rails 5. Cryptic errors by automatic graders make submitting assignments a huge hassle.
By Sarah W•
Great start to rails, provided a practical intro. Could have used a little more frequent practice actually writing code.
