You can start a project in a few minutes.

I suggest you take a couple of days out and work right through a good
tutorial such as railstutorial.org (which is free to use online).
With your experience you should be able to work quickly through it.
Then you will understand the basics of rails and should be able to
answer the question yourself.

You should start from (pure) Ruby, not from Ruby On Rails.

I think that very much depends on the individual. Someone with good
knowledge of programming fundamentals should not have difficulty
learning both at once.

I think rails is great, but it’s probably more complicated than PHP … I
think Rails is also perhaps better as far as back end development. If
alot
of what you do is mostly front end, I am not sure if you would get that
far
into the rails stack.

Since Rails is more complex, if you learn some Rails and then go to a
job
interview; you may get asked a ton of questions that you are not too
sure
about unless your are more of an expert because there is alot of stuff
in
the Rails grab bag so to speak. I know quite a bit of Rails, but I can’t
remember all the details about every last bit of it off the top of my
head
sometimes which I have found frustrating when asked such questions

If you really just start from a tutorial and get going you can get a
serviceable project up - and understood - in about a week.

The development environment can be a little tricky starting out and may
take a day or two. Or it could take an hour if you get the right
tutorials. Some of the tutorials out there are a bit dated; anything
mentioning Rails 3 will only be partially right.

Once you get the basics going you might want to read things like
Eloquent Ruby to stop writing code that looks like converted PHP or
Java.

Caveat - If you don’t understand MVC paradigm yet, figure twice the time
or even longer.

You can start with “The Ruby P.ming Language” book. It’s written by
David Flanagan & Yukihiro M…

Oh and as a PHP developer you could be dismal on Test Driven
Development. That will be another week or two struggle to get used to
that. Does’t prevent you from making your website but you will
eventually have to pick that up.

And then there’s Git. If you don’t know that.
