My advice, as always, is to use Linux (eg ubuntu) or Mac, not Windows,
don’t use an IDE (at least not until you are fully proficient with the
command line) and to start by working right through a good tutorial
such as railstutorial.org, which is free to use online. Use a decent
editor with ruby syntax highlighting of course.

Hi,

I suggest starting with
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html
and then railstutorial.org or others, because Getting Started with Rails
is
much shorter yet still demonstrates essential concepts. I’d suggest to
use
the editor or IDE that you’re the most familiar with in order to
concentrate on learning one thing at a time.

Hi,
Checkout Getting Started with Ruby on
Railshttp://www.skillsin.com/blog/?p=515post with great pointers to
recommended tutorials.

My suggestions:

  1. Learn object-oriented programming in Python. Python is easier to
    install, learn, and read than Ruby, and it paved the way to learning
    Ruby.
  2. Learn Ruby before learning Rails. (tryruby.org provides a good
    introduction.) I know that the majority of other Rubyists will back me
    up
    on this. Not knowing Ruby first makes Rails seem too much like
    mysterious,
    unexplainable black magic. Having a passing familiarity with Ruby makes
    Rails look somewhat less alien.
  3. Go through the Rails for Zombies tutorial at
    http://railsforzombies.org/ . It gives you a good introduction to what
    Ruby on Rails can do, and it doesn’t require installing Ruby on Rails.
  4. Go through railstutorial.org . At least get through the first 7
    chapters.
  5. Start a good project that makes use of Ruby on Rails. For me, these
    projects were Bargain Stock Funds (http://www.bargainstockfunds.com) and
    Doppler Value Investing (http://www.dopplervalueinvesting.com). I just
    don’t get that engaged from merely going through tutorials.
