This intermediate computer programming course uncovers how to code long-lasting software using highly-productive Agile techniques to develop Software as a Service (SaaS) using Ruby on Rails. You will understand the new challenges and opportunities of SaaS versus shrink-wrapped software and learn to apply fundamental Rails programming techniques to the design, development, testing, and public cloud deployment of an Software as a Service (SaaS) application

Using best-of-breed tools that support modern development techniques including Behavior-Driven design, user stories, Test-Driven Development, velocity, and pair programming, learners will discover how modern programming language features in Ruby on Rails can improve productivity and code maintainability.

Weekly coding projects and quizzes will be part of the learning experience in this SaaS course. Those who successfully complete the assignments and earn a passing grade can get an honor code certificate or verified certificate from BerkeleyX.
