Web 2.0 Application Development Using Ajax and Ruby on Rails

Objective : The Program prepares the participants for a job in a large Indian Company or in a MNC. The program is centered around Ajax and Ruby on Rails Technology which is in high demand due to the surge in e-biz developments taking place in the US and other advanced countries.

Overview : User generated web or marketing messages created by consumers characterize the new wave of Web 2.0 products and services. Examples of these are eBay, del.icio.us , You Tube, Flikr and iTunes. Blogs, podcasting , wiki are some of the ways consumers spread the good and the bad word about products and services they use. User experience is all important in the applications where users not only use or consume but they review, evaluate and provide on line feedback to other potential users. Quick response to user feedback draws more users to these frequently updated pages. Ruby as a language provides the small footprint that is necessary for ease of creation and maintenance of applications for Web 2.0. Ruby’s power comes because of the Rails framework. Rails allows developers to quickly develop and deploy robust web based applications.
