First time user- making forms that create pages?

Hey, I remember my friend Bryan told me about this new language- Ruby
on Rails.

I had a meeting with a friend of mine who would like me to set up a
database for them. Sort of like a form she can fill out- with a
companies name and website URL/logo, and then hit a submit button- and
there will be a whole new page in a “directory” or sorts.

Basically she wants me to make a website that she can edit new
companies in a database- by using a form. She would also like a search
bar on the main page that users can use to search for a company (that
shes added) in the database.

I figured I would have to learn some PHP for this, but is it possible
with RoR? I’m clearly very new, and if it’s possible, I would buy
books- read tuts on how to start coding this

yes, that’s perfect for RoR
(and if you don’t know PHP already, learning RoR and building your app
will take you much less time)

I have been 8 months in RoR and I recommended some client to move from
PHP or Java to Ruby. And now Ruby on Rails in some of universities in my
city are already used for their curriculum in Object Oriented
Programming Class. You are not late to learn it, because Ruby on Rails
is live.

Reinhart, which Universities are offering ROR as part of the OOP
classes?

I’m interested as I work for a Uni and I’m trying to get our Computer
Department to start teaching it, they are dragging their feet and
showing them another University that is offering it would help my case
alot.

How would you suggest I start learning RoR? Is there a book I should
pick up?

For such a simple application you can probably get all you need from
the first dozen chapters of “Agile Web D. with Rails” (Thomas/
Hannson/et al, Pragmatic Programmers).

I am in indonesia, some universities try to change Java to be ruby but
no in Theory. It’s in Practice class of OOP. But here you can see list
of universties which are using RoR :
