Starting with Web Development

This weekend we restarted the ruby4kids sessions. We are meeting at LivingSocial office in Reston, with 7 kids. This time, the kids asked to learn about web development.

Our first class was in Introduction to the web, and the kids really got excited about this. We used sinatra to come up with a quick web server to serve actions that they would change/change and the response would be rendered on the browser.

We then used rails to create a simple note taking app, and with Heroku the kids were able to quickly see their application posted on the Internet. They really got a kick about that.

We are going to go into each area of web development, using the rails app as the basis for teaching. We will start with the view portion of it, modifying the html and css.


  1. Hey,

  6. Thank for sharing wonderful information with us. Now agile program management is very famous for web development. It is a group to discuss and promote techniques for the management of agile projects. APM seeks to provide managers with a forum to share practical advice, experiences and insights from the application of agile methodologies like eXtreme Programming, SCRUM, Feature Driven Development and DSDM.
