Overview

Part 2 of the UC Berkeley Agile Development Using Ruby on Rails XSeries Program will teach you to use JavaScript to enhance applications and create more sophisticated apps by adding relationships between models within the Ruby on Rails framework. You will also learn about what happens after the apps are deployed to real users, including how to monitor performance, identify and fix common performance problems, and avoid compromising customer data. Finally, learners will see how to apply Agile techniques to enhance and refactor legacy code and practice app deployment to real users to monitor performance, identify and fix common performance problems, and avoid compromising customer data.

Other topics covered in this software engineering course include:

  • How to form, organize and manage small programming teams
  • Introduction to design patterns: what they are and how to recognize opportunities to apply them
  • Using Rails for more advanced features like third-party authentication and elegantly expressing design patterns that arise frequently in SaaS

There will be four homework assignments: two programming assignments, an open source assignment and one assignment about operations/deployment. There will also be several short quizzes. The videos and homework assignments used in this offering of the course were revised in October 2016.

The first version was not as good as CS169.1x.

It is probably due to the fact that it is quite young as a MOOC.

The homework were less challenging than the one of the first part.

I guess next session will be harder ;-)
