Beginning Rails 4, 3rd Edition

Beginning Rails 4, 3rd Edition is a book that will guide you from never having programmed with Ruby, to having a Rails application built and deployed to the web. You’ll learn how to combine all the components of Rails to develop your own web applications.
You will learn how to use Git for source control and best practice techniques to create applications like a pro. Essential, and often-missed, information on testing and learning to program with Ruby are also covered.
