Since its release many years ago, Ruby on Rails has become a staple of the web development industry. Today however, web architectures tend to favour the integration of separate services, or front-end code connecting to the back-end through JSON APIs.

In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor José Mota will show you how to get started with API development in Ruby on Rails to deliver data through JSON.
