Latest course update: June 2018 – Added a comprehensive tutorial on how to work with the Rails 5.2 encrypted credentials to securely manage configuration variables such as API and application secret keys.

Through the years I’ve constantly heard the same question from students: I can follow a tutorial, but I don’t feel confident enough to build apps/features from scratch . This course is my answer to that question. I’m not satisfied in simply teaching you how to build an application, my goal is to teach you to understand how to build professional web applications, not to simply follow a tutorial. This is the most comprehensive course I’ve ever put together and combines my 14+ years of development experience.

I took a completely different approach in building this course. This course is unique for a number of reasons:

So with all that being said, let’s talk about everything that we’re going to build throughout the guides. We’re going to build a feature rich portfolio application that you can actually use for your own portfolio (I’m even using it for my own portfolio). Let’s walk through the full feature set of what the application will include:

In addition to the lectures, I also include the source code for each guide so that you can always have access to the full codebase for the application.

    I’ve just started, but the course seems to be exactly what I needed. The level is just right. Also happy to get some knowledge on Git/GitHub usage. Looking forward for more complex topics.

    This course does cover a lot, but Jordan spends a ridiculous amount of time explanning concepts and looking at the code instead of just writing the code and showing how things work while practicing. Also if you have no programming experience, don’t buy this course, it doesn’t seem to have any of the ruby logic part in it so it can be very confusing for these people.

    Yes. It has a very professional approach. So, it is a good match for someone who has a limited amount of time for skill improving. It is also very structured. It conveys a rich amount of personal experience. Finally, the delivery is very entertaining.

    I was struggling a bit with javascript part but since this is a rails course, I must say that it exeeded my expectations.

    This is one of THE BEST courses on full stack web development you can take on Udemy (said from a guy who only rates courses when he’s 100% done with them). I have tried reading Michael Hartl’s Ruby on Rails Tutorial and paused due to frustration. Turns out I don’t learn well from reading books and found many Rails concepts very confusing from just following the book (I’m more familiar with Python & have learned a little Flask & Django). So I tried Jordan’s course and suddenly everything I was confused about Rails became clear. Maybe struggling with the book and then watching the video is a good approach, maybe not. But Jordan’s lectures are real gems (puns intended). I’ve purchased many Udemy courses and not many came close to the course structure, major project thread, and section deep dives that Jordan offers. You know that you’ll get a full view of how Rails works while learning all the good practices of both Rails and web development in general. Some people might complain about that the course content is close to 4 years old. I see it as a plus. For example, some Rails generated files have changed a bit in content or the Bootstrap example is updated, so what Jordan shows in the video might not always match what we do in real time. But that forces us to proactively learn rather than passively consume and makes learning more fun and more effective. This is certainly not the most beginner friendly course because it’s a lot of valuable information packed in 40 hours. But once you’re familiar with a programming language (like Python, Javascript, or Ruby) and have a basic concept of how MVC works, you will appreciate this course so much. Even if so many people have left Rails to chase fancier frameworks in 2019 and 2020, I would wager it’s worth just taking this course to learn Rails because along the way you’ll pick up a good understanding of how to do full stack web development. Jordan is also always responsive and answering questions. This course is highly recommended. Thanks and I look forward to the new updates on Rails 6.0!

    Outdated course. If you are using Rails 5.1 and above you will be encountering errors starting Lesson #70 and up even if you follow the video to the letter. The 1st Github commit for the course project occurred in December 29, 2016. Udemy should have an option to show when a particular course is created (that’s created not updated) so you would know which courses to avoid. Edit: I am also using Ruby 2.7. I don’t know if that is causing all of the method errors as well.

    A really great course. Jordan is a fantastic instructor! I would give it 5 stars, but I’m waiting for the Rails 6 update. It was difficult to go through being rails 5.

    Really a well put together course, it helped me get a in depth look at how Ruby on Rails works.

    The author of this course either doesn’t know how to use Windows OS or he favors other OS over Windows. I had to buy another course from a different author who uses Windows and support other OS.

    I have been away from Ruby for quite some time now and needed a refresher. Because I have watched some videos from Jordan on Youtube and already liked his didactic I decided to go for this one, and do not regret. Of course it can be a bit outdated, right now I am using Rails 6 on a Windows 10 but that was not a major issue, had a few things to overcome so far, but knowing how to look for answers and solve problems is one of the most important skills a dev must have. I totally recommend this course for anyone willing to ingress in the Rails world
