"Hands on with Ruby on Rails"

Computerworld.com has just posted a piece I’ve been working on (on and
off over a few months) about learning Ruby on Rails. It’s pretty basic
and is meant for people new to the framework. It also includes a listing
of resources. You can see it at

Nice! I especially like the division in chapters. Most notably the
‘Why’ chapter. Sometimes it is kinda hard to explain to people.

Bookmarked for reading tomorrow.

Congrats on the article mate

Nice job!

A couple of things did jump out at me. On page 2, after introducing
Instant
Rails, you say " Installing RoR on a Linux machine is a bit more
manual."
There are packages for both Linux and OSX that are very similar to
Instant
Rails: Live CD and Locomotive. I also noticed that your resources
section
didn’t mention two that most of us consider essential: “Agile Web
Development with Rails” and “Programming Ruby.” If the processes at
Computerworld allow updates after publication, I’d recommend those.

In any event, welcome aboard!

Best regards,
Bill
