Ever want to know how Twitter, or Reddit, or Facebook was built? What if I told you, in 10 short weeks you could have the skills and knowledge to have replicas of these sites up and running production ready on the internet. In this course you will learn about web programming, databases, Ruby, and the Rails framework which is used to build popular websites. You'll walk away with a solid foundation of programming, and enough to get started building any website you can dream up.
