Just started learning on rails. The first few time I edited a migration file it was using colons like: create_table :table do |t| t.column :column, :string Now I'm working on a tutorial where it's using quotes for the table and column names: reate_table "table" do |t| t.column "column", :string Are these two ways interchangeable ? Is there a preferred ? TIA Stuart

short/quick answer: yes, they are interchangable, however, symbols (what you refer to as colons) are preferred in certain cases. http://glu.ttono.us/articles/2005/08/19/understand...
