I feel somewhat out of place here amongst all the real developers, but
hopefully someone might look kindly upon my pitiful first steps into
the world of development. I’ve five weeks experience having just
recently enrolled in a webtechnoloy course, and my previous experience
is Nil. I’ve learned the basics of what classes and methods are, and
not much else. However within 8 weeks I’ll need to submit an e-
commerce site that has been developed on the rails framework.
Terrifying!!! Especially considering I’m having trouble even
installing rails. I’m using Windows. Our tutor has recommended using
Ruby Mine. I have been using Netbeans up to now. I’ve documented my
very humble first steps here http://ruby1ststeps.blogspot.com/ where
you can read the project as well.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might wish to offer.
