Rails on Containers eBook

Introduction to the eBook

This book is designed to introduce you to using containers and Kubernetes for full-stack development. You’ll learn how to develop a full-stack application using Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL with Sidekiq, and how to manage them all — first with Docker, then with Docker Compose, and finally with Kubernetes.

This book is based on the Rails on Containers tutorial series found on DigitalOcean Community. The topics that it covers include how to:

  1. Get started developing an application about sharks using the Ruby on Rails framework

  2. Extend the application’s data model to incorporate user submitted information about sharks

  3. Add the Stimulus JavaScript and Bootstrap CSS frameworks to your application to create visually appealing, interactive pages

  4. Integrate Sidekiq into your application to handle asynchronous data processing

  5. Containerize your application and streamline your development workflow using Docker Compose

  6. Migrate your Docker Compose development workflow to Kubernetes, finishing with a completely cloud-native application

Each chapter is is designed to build progressively from the first. However, if you’re familiar with a topic, or are more interested in a particular section, feel free to jump to the chapter that best suits your purpose.
