  • How Valkyrie differs from ActiveRecord
  • How to manage the differences between Valkyrie and Rails while retaining most of Rails' common features

In this workshop, participants will learn how to build a simple Rails application using Valkyrie as a dependency. Data will be persisted with Valkyrie's data mapper pattern and not with ActiveRecord; however, all of Rail's most common UI elements and features will be retained. If time permits, we will also add Blacklight as a dependency for search and retrieval.

Requirements:  Everyone will need to bring their own laptop with a working Ruby/Rails environment that includes Postgres version 9 or later. Prior to the workshop, there will be instructions to ensure you have the proper dependencies installed.
