Complex use cases require complex solutions, and the Rails framework delivers powerful tools for solving them. This book demonstrates how to build an ecommerce website, complete with an administrative backend, a real-world product/cart/order data model, AJAX, API integrations, email order confirmations, and finally deployment and hosting using industry standard tools: Heroku and Amazon Web Services. Along the way you’ll also pick up some advanced nuances of Ruby that will help reduce the amount of code you have to write.

Our workbooks are meant to be used while you work on your computer. They typically contain step-by-step exercises that walk you through doing tasks on your computer. An ideal setup would be to have the eBook loaded onto a device (like a tablet/smartphone) or on a second computer monitor, so you can read the book as you work on your computer. You can also print the PDF if you prefer.
Noble Desktop books are intended for use by you, the owner. They are not intended to be loaned or given to others. The files are subtly watermarked with your name and email, but we do not apply any DRM. You can copy your eBooks to any of your own devices without restriction. You can print the PDF files for your own use, but not to give to others. You cannot sell used eBooks. Ownership is solely yours and cannot be transferred.
Our books are packed with step-by-step exercises that walk you through projects. You’ll learn by doing exercises, not reading long explanations commonly found in user manuals. The goal is to give you hands-on practice with the program, getting you started quickly with the things that are most important for real life work. Our books are not a replacement for the manual, but manuals aren’t how you learn an app!
