What is Rails?
Rails is a web development framework written in the Ruby language and typically referred to as “Ruby on Rails”. Rails was the first mainstream web framework to embrace the concept of convention over configuration, which improves productivity by setting sensible defaults that work for most projects.
Companies using Ruby on Rails who have hired Epicodus graduates include New Relic, LivingSocial, and SpendWell.
