Ruby on Rails, also called Rails, is a very popular open-source, full-stack web development framework written in Ruby. Many well-known websites were built using Ruby on Rails, including Shopify, Kickstarter, ZenDesk, and SoundCloud. While Rails is one of the most beginner-friendly approaches to web development, it’s robust enough to create powerful and useful web applications. Since its launch, Ruby on Rails has inspired frameworks in other languages, including Node.js.

Ruby on Rails is typically used by web developers. Web development as a whole is a growing specialization, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 13 percent growth in the field between 2018 and 2028, which is much faster than the 5 percent projected growth rate across all occupations. The median salary for web developers in the U.S. is $70,000, while the most experienced professionals earn upwards of $124,000.

There are many bootcamps available for people who are interested in Ruby and web development. Below is a list of those that include, or focus on, Ruby on Rails. SwitchUp lists course materials and student reviews within each bootcamp listing to help interested students compare their options.
