Databases in Ruby on Rails: Advanced Concepts

This course covers how to use advanced features to work with Ruby on Rails databases. It covers star schemas, lists and calendar tables, multi-valued dimensions as well as columnar databases. It also covers working with the InnoDB engine as well as managing deadlocks, scan locks and concurrency.

Programmers who want to learn to use advanced features available for working with databases in Ruby on Rails


Star Schemas

  • demonstrates the uses of Star Schemas and explain an example showing Fact and Dimension tables
  • up a range of models through the use of a Star Schema
  • use a star schema in a Ruby on Rails application for warehouse type queries
  • Lists and Calendar Dates

  • represent a child table of objects as an ordered list in Ruby on Rails
  • use Ruby on Rails to build a Calendar table with multiple fields, and use code to insert data into the table
  • Multi-Valued Dimensions

  • create a table for multi-valued dimensions in Ruby on Rails
  • write a query for data stored as multi-valued dimensions in a database in Ruby on Rails
  • Columnar Databases

  • work with a columnar database using Ruby on Rails.
  • The InnoDB Engine

  • set up the InnoDB engine in Ruby on Rails to support transactions that the default MySQL storage engine otherwise doesn't support
  • work with InnoDB locking in Rails using a transaction and a controller
  • Troubleshooting Locking

  • resolve deadlocks when working with databases in Ruby on Rails
  • uses various tools and ways to avoid table scans and negate table locks in Ruby on Rails databases
  • Concurrency

  • outline ways to efficiently deploy multi-threaded Ruby on Rails applications on a multi-threaded server and a multi-process server.
  • fine tune your application to effectively deal with concurrent requests in Ruby on Rails
  • a unique key constraint and then have the Ruby on Rails model validate it with a couple of simple commands
  • index a Ruby on Rails database variable as a foreign key
