Any suggestions? http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/rails/index.html http://poignantguide.net/ruby/ http://www.rubycentral.com/book/preface.html You also may want to check your area to see if there is a Users Group. Still trying to figure this all out myself. :o) Good luck!

You may also want to give this beginner's tutorial a try, it has a 40 page or so PDF tutorial with code examples. I'm finding it quite helpful : location: rails.homelinux.org Tutorial: http://www.rails4days.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/Rails4Days.pdf code examples here: http://www.rails4days.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/todo_app.zip HTH, Amr
