Hello Samir, I am a newbie as well, and not even a programmer ... I have built up this list of potential help. Some are free and others you pay for. Just check each one out and use there free services until you get more proficient. I used Michael Hartl' screencasts to learn the basics. Here is the url: http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ruby-on-rails-tutorial-book There is many other tutorials, Rob Connery has some introductory screen casts: http://tekpub.com/ Ryan Bates has a whole lot of railscasts that address specific issues in rails: http://railscasts.com/?view=list Kevin Wang and Chris Lee are offering a course in rails: http://www.railstutors.com/ Then you have railsmentors.org where you can sign up and request a mentor to help you through a sticky spot. Another great resource is Rails Guide. Peepcode has a series on rails: http://www.rubyinside.com/peepcode-releases-the-me... Rails Zombies is a fun introduction: http://railsforzombies.org/ Another great service is Rails hotline ... this one you phone up and you get a rails programmer on the phone who will talk you through your problem ... if you find he has really helped you, then you can buy the group some more phone minutes ... this is all explained at the web site: http://rails.pockethotline.com/ Another site, just for reference, is a real expensive site but for folks who are already proficient in rails but want some more power ... owningrails: http://owningrails.com/ I guess that is it for me ... I think there are even more resources but maybe some of the other members could fill you in on those. Keep on riding the rails.

http://ureddit.com/class/40250/web-programming-wit... - This is a good choice to supplement with the Ruby on Rails tutorial. Once you get through these comfortably, you can move onto more advanced topics, and books. Also, Try keeping a blog as a journal and keep track of your day to day development. There are few problems that you'd keep encountering over and over again. An example is of setting up the environment, and common debugging problems that keep recurring. In addition, Edxonline.org has a software as a service course that is coming up which you can take. But you would need to become stronger in the programming aspect. Which platform are you developing on ? Windows, Linux, Mac ?
