The book dives right into the process of creating a production-level web application using agile methodologies and test-driven development combined with Rails best practices. You’ll take advantage of the latest crop of Rails plug-ins and helpers that will radically improve your programming schedule. You’ll also create a real application step-by-step, plus the book is driven by real-world cases throughout.

You will begin by learning how to install Rails and quickly create a product catalog interfaced with your choice of database technologies. Then you’ll discover how to build modern, Ajax-powered shopping carts and add useful features like customer feedback modules.

You’ll also learn how to make your application work flawlessly with existing production systems using web services, and then ultimately deploy and tune your application for production use.
