LearnTogether: Why learn alone?

Description

Nowadays, many people prefer to self-learn. We are lucky that there are many online platforms to teach us new languages, coding skills, and pretty much every discipline of knowledge. But sometimes self-learning can make us a bit lonely. We need some motivation and support. LearnTogether is a platform for people who are self-learning to group together, support and help each other toward achieving their learning goals.

Technology

  • LearnTogether is built with Ruby on Rails. It uses Object-relational mapping (ORM) for converting data between Ruby and MySQL database.
  • LearnTogether follows the Representational State Transfer convention (REST) as a standard for communications between the server and browsers.
  • LearnTogether uses Devise, a gem responsible for managing users and sessions. Devise uses Bcrypt, which salts passwords to protect passwords from rainbow attacks.
  • LearnTogether also uses Bootstrap for styling, mobile responsiveness, and to provide a consistent experience across browsers.
  • LearnTogether is deployed on Heroku.
  • All images used on the website are published by others under Creative Commons License.
