Active Record Associations in Rails – (October 2017)

Most of your Rails models are going to be connected to other models in some way. An Author has many Articles, and each Article belongs to an Author. A Doctor has many Patients, and a Patient may have many Doctors as well. Rails uses associations to make it easy to track these relationships in your database.

So far all our networking code could do was make GET requests but being able to send and save data to a server is just as important. In this course, let’s improve our networking code and learn how to make a POST request. There are a lot of additional concerns when saving data and we’ll spend some time talking about security, preventing malicious input and much more.
