For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).
Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.
Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Ruby on Rails - how it flows, and where the files go
Ruby on Rails is a web framework that lets you use Ruby code to add dynmaics to your web site, using the MVC (Model, View, Controller) architecture that keeps the look and feel of the page (View) apart from the business logic (Model), linking the two via the Controller. Rails provides the framework for you to work in - you extend default (supplied) classes in your controller and model, and provide HTML files with embedded Ruby calls to supplied functions to add in your dynamic changes to the look and feel.
With rails providing a number of elements, you need to know where the hooks are to put your code / web page, and here are two diagrams from yesterday's course showing the elements in logical (operational) order, and where each of them fits in the file system tree.
The file names used aren't explicity stated as you write your code - they're implicitly derived from the the URL you use. Further, the method called demo
within the floor controller is implicitly the code that was called when the URL was called up ...
The URL was http://localhost:3000/floor/demo (using WEBrick test server, running on the development machine, so - sorry - not available for you to click on and run on our live server!)
Next public Ruby course - the week after next - you'll find details [here]
. If you come back to this page on the archives and have missed the June course, there are others later this year, and the schedule for next year will be published in the same place in the late summer. (written 2012-06-08, updated 2012-06-09)
