Let's check in with each other... (hope you're sitting down for this)
Just a heads up on what you'll be asked to do at the end of the week.
Follow these steps to get Ruby on Rails set up on your computer
Make sure you have Rails 5, Ruby 2, Sublime Text, and your command line ready before moving on.
The command line can be a scary place for beginners, but there are only a handful of commands you'll need to know in order to use it.
I'm going to show you how to create a new Ruby on Rails application
Git lets you save different versions of your files to make it easier to work with a team, or to go back to previous saves.
Updating .gitignore lets you ignore certain files you don't want Git to track
I'll show you how to do something really useful with Git: go back to your last save
What if you made a mistake and wanted to rename your entire application? It's actually pretty easy.
Let's use git to get your code up on Github
One of the first things you'll want to do in a brand new Rails app is replace the default homepage with one of your own
Setting your root path means changing what page people see when they go to your homepage
You'll need more than just a homepage if you want to build a real web application
Embedded Ruby (ERB) lets you write Ruby code inside your web pages
By moving our links into the application layout, we can avoid duplication of code
We're done for the week, let's save and push our changes to Github
Your assignment for this week...
