GitHub is built with Ruby on Rails

Why should you learn Ruby on Rails? Well, some of the biggest websites in the world are built using the Ruby on Rails framework.

GitHub, Shopify, Netflix, and Basecamp are a few examples of companies that use Ruby on Rails to build their product.

The reason they choose Rails is it lets them focus on development speed. Computers are getting faster every day, but it's still hard to communicate ideas between developers and product owners. Rails helps by making it easy to translate your ideas into real-world code.

Who makes GoRails?

My name is Chris Oliver, and I've been part of the Ruby on Rails community for many years now. I've contributed to Ruby on Rails, run a Ruby on Rails hosting company, host a podcast about Ruby, and have created and contributed to many popular Ruby gems.

GoRails is designed to explain how code works in a way you can easily understand. Software is often a lot simpler than you might think. Most of the time you just need to learn how to think about code. Having the right thought process can make impossible or daunting code seem easy. We can help you get there and become an expert with Ruby on Rails.
