This class includes an overview the two most popular frameworks for creating web applications with ruby: Ruby on Rails and Sinatra. After you've learned enough ruby to work with a set (or sets) of data and clean it up, how do you turn it into something your readers can interact with? We'll focus on using the simple Sinatra framework to build on what you've learned in ruby 1 & 2.

This class will be most useful if: You attended the Ruby 1 & 2 classes or have previous Ruby experience.
