Greetings !

Today i completed watching the screencast which covers Chapter 2 Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl

Our ( team) goal is to watch a screencast per day covering each chapter as instructed by our mentor

This video tutorial ( Chapter 2) lasts for 1 hour and 10 minutes

From the screencast i learnt the  concepts such as

a. Scaffolding

b. RESTful Web Services

c. Model-View-Controller in action

d. Relationship among tables

e. Simple validations

I found its a very nice tutorial

I understood the fundamentals behind a rails application

My sincere thanks to the author, Michael Hartl for creating it and our mentor Chandrashekar sir for providing the resource to us

Then i switched back to Chapter 1 screencast to get to know the branch and merge concepts in Git

Also, i learnt how to deploy a rails application using Heroku

Here are my sharings,

Creating a Heroku account

First of all, it is necessary to create a account in Heroku

Click here to sign up

Install Heroku gem

gem install heroku

Adding keys to heroku

We need to add ssh public key to heroku

To do it, type the command

heroku keys:add

It will ask to login to heroku account

Creating a new application

heroku create

This will create a subdomain for the application

Deploying the application

git push heroku master

Opening the application

heroku open

It will open the application in the browser with the address generated by it

http://strong-planet-817.heroku.com/ – this is the url generated by heroku for deploying my first rails application

By 3:50 p.m. we gathered for SCRUM meet

I told as i watched the screencast and played wth git and heroku 🙂
