Deploying Rails track now available to Pro students!
Hey, everyone... Just wanted to let you know that Treehouse has just published something great for our Pro students: an entire track devoted to deploying Rails applications! Here's what it's all about:
You've learned to create a Rails app on your development machine. Now you need to make it available for others to use. For that, you'll need to deploy it to a production server. By the end of this track, you'll have learned how to install Ruby and Rails on a server, along with database software and all the other components your app needs to run. We'll show you how to do it manually first, to build your understanding of how everything works together. Then we'll show you how to automate the process, so you can spend your time making your app great!
I'm especially pleased with our setup for this track, because we start you out using a virtual Linux server using VirtualBox. You won't need to pay for a server with a web host to follow along! (Of course, if you already have a host, our instructions will work fine there, too!)
Hope you enjoy. Thanks as always for learning with Treehouse!
