Scaffolding in a rails application sets up resources for you to work with in your application. This is a really fancy way of saying that it creates a model, controller, migration, templates, and assorted files. Scaffolding is a great start to the app but is meant to be replaced over time. In this workshop, you'll learn in depth how it works.
