Back to Basics: Validation in Rails

Let’s talk about how validation works in Rails. This will be a heavily example-based talk about the basic and not-so-basic aspects of model validation in Rails. Some topics we’ll touch on:

  • Basic Rails validations
  • Custom validators
  • ActiveModel::Errors API
  • Real world examples

The goal is to go through some best practices and how to use them and some worst practices and how to avoid them.
