I’m completely, brand spankin’ new to Ruby and Rails, and pretty much to
web app development in general (i.e. searching the web for answers isn’t
working for me because I don’t know the prerequisite stuff that’s
assumed on most pages.)
Does anyone know of, or want to give a shot at, writing a good tutorial,
for acts_as_attachment? The Techno Weenie stuff is nearly
incomprehensible for someone at my level.
I just want to learn how to use it!! (I am so frustrated right now it
hard for me to express!)
How about starting on page 1 of Agile Web D. with Ruby on
I did that a year ago myself.
Don’t think you will learn it in a weekend.
I understand that you are frustated but it takes time
to learn this stuff.
Sometimes I go back to the first chapters.
I see everything I had trouble to understand.
Its amazing what I learned.
But it took time.
So buy the book and start like DHH said,
just like peter said, buy the agile book. i purchased the book around
august and doing the first exercise on building a rails app is a good
introduction. i am slowly and steadily getting used to the rails
framework and ruby writing. much difficult for me coming from a c++
standpoint, but many similarites with object oriented programming are
there. just keep pluggin away and things eventually make sense.
