"Questions" is a web application inspired by "Quora" built using Ruby on Rails and React/Redux. It allows users to ask questions and get answers as well as answer the questions of others.
I used React.JS and Redux to build responsive App. Used Rails because it has friendly convention that make it easier to build an App. It supports full CRUD operations
