0% experience

Hi,
I want to learn to use ROR but I have 0% experience. Do you think being
a
member of this group would help me?
Thanks,
Che

You can find resources for learning Rails here:

http://www.buildingwebapps.com/topic/5108-ruby-on-rails
http://www.buildingwebapps.com/articles/6508-new-crop-of-rails-2-0-books

Hey Che,

It’s mostly development and support discussion here.

You might want to check out these (I’ve found them very useful when
learning)

http://guides.rails.info/ (currently being expanded by community
contributions)
http://railscasts.com/ (lots of short, and helpful screencasts)
http://envycasts.com/ (slightly indepth)
http://www.pragprog.com/screencasts/v-rbar/everyday-active-record
(slightly
indepth)
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/rails3/agile-web-development-with-rails-third-edition
(beta but still very helpful)
http://www.buildingwebapps.com/learningrails (check the screencasts)
http://apidock.com/rails (I prefer ApiDock over
http://api.rubyonrails.org/ because of the search and user comments,
but
they both have the same documentation I’ve found)
http://www.tutorialspoint.com/ruby-on-rails-2.1/rails-preliminary.htm

Kieran

I found the members of this group to be very helpful indeed!

I like this book:
Agile Web D. with Rails, Third Edition
http://pragprog.com/titles/rails3/agile-web-development-with-rails-third-edition

It takes you step-by-step in creating your own Pragmatic Bookshelf
application, explaining why things work as you go.

The final version isn’t out yet but the Beta is proper.

Yes it will help but you needto get ruby installed o your computer and
get the hand-on skills. You will then know how to and what help to
request for.

Back in 2006 when Rails was just getting noticed, I learned using that
same book First edition. Good choice. What other languages/frameworks
do you have experience with? I find that can help in telling people
how to approach Rails. Also are you a Mac or PC guy? This helps too.

Thanks for your suggestions. Where can learn the basis codes & their
meanings?

I have 0% experience but I want to learn… I have a Windows XP PC.
No computer language experience… I will need to undstand basis
programming
principles.
Thanks,
Che

This book starts from scratch. It teaches you those basic principles in
Ruby.

I didn’t learn to program from this book, but I thoroughly enjoyed
reading
it.

Che,

Here is nice way to just try out Ruby with zero overhead. No need to
install Ruby on your machine or do anything just visit this web site and
try Ruby right in your browsers.

http://tryruby.hobix.com/

This will at least give you a feel for whether you really want to pursue
this coding thing further.

book…
but it’s depends

Hi,
Thank you for the links below. I 've already signed up for the course on
RoR…
I think that will be a big help in understanding RoR. Before starting
the
course, I want to get familiar with ruby language. I went to
ruby-lang.organd created a account. I even tried to dowload it by
using the One Step
installer, but for some reason it does not look as if it was installed
on my
PC…
Any recommendations, where to go for learning or just getting familiar
with
Ruby Langage?

Thanks again,

Che

Thanks!

An online version of which can be found here:

http://pine.fm/LearnToProgram/

Definitely worth a look. And of course, for a surreal tutorial there’s
always _why’s Poingnant Guide:

http://poignantguide.net/ruby/

HTH,
