#### DISCLAIMER: This tutorial is not for beginners.

Want to know how to build apps like skype, zoom etc... using Ruby on rails 6? I got you!!

Building a video chat feature on a ruby on rails application is not an easy thing to do. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to do it, another reason being that I didn’t want to build another blog, todo-app etc… I wanted something challenging. 

You can check the app on heroku at [https://dev-video.herokuapp.com/](https://dev-video.herokuapp.com/).

For a demo, you can either do it yourself (by logging into two separate accounts on different browsers), or check this small demo on youtube at [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXouJ8w7rQg](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXouJ8w7rQg).

Here is a link to the first 7 chapters of the tutorial: [https://www.dropbox.com/s/2aqdsvm721tr01s/Ebook2020.pdf?dl=0](https://www.dropbox.com/s/2aqdsvm721tr01s/Ebook2020.pdf?dl=0)

You can get the full ebook on Gumroad at [https://gumroad.com/l/lNEhE](https://gumroad.com/l/lNEhE) for the price of a Starbucks coffee.

If you want to follow along with this tutorial, you are going to need a few things:

* Ruby 2.7
* Rails 6.0.2
* AWS S3 bucket
* AWS credentials (access\_key\_id and secret\_access\_key)

HAPPY CODING!!!
