Railsbridge Introduction to Ruby on Rails

I recently attended an introduction to Ruby on Rails workshop taught by Railsbridge Triangle. The goal of the workshop was to build a simple application and deploy it to Heroku.

  • Create a simple web application named “Suggestotron” that allows users to add a new topic, vote for a topic, and delete a vote for a topic.

Note: Due to an older version of OSX, I had to jump through quite a number of hoops to install everything needed for this workshop requiring research via the Apple Developer site, Stack Overflow, and asking Railsbridge volunteers for guidance on my installation problem.
