This tutorial assumes that you already have Ruby and Ruby on Rails installed on your computer and you already have a basic understanding how APIs work. This tutorial uses Ruby 2.1.2 and Rails 4.2.0.

What will we build?
We will build a net income calculator for freelancers in an imaginary company that serves as a middleman between a freelancer and an employer. To be able to focus on Ruby, we won’t build a web based application so you won’t have to use HTML. What we will build is a very simple command line application.
