You’ll be OK… just take it in small steps and follow lots of
especially in the “Agile Web D. With Ruby On Rails” book:
I guess Rails doesn’t have the immediacy of hacking something together
but in the long run, it will make you a much better web programmer IMHO,
rather than leave you with a big pile of nasty hacks and mish-mashed
Also, once you get going, it really does become a LOT quicker to put
a basic site. When I initially started Rails, I could only see myself
it on bigger projects, but now I’ve used it on small projects too, and
still perfectly suited to that.
PHP is OK, but it really gives you too much rope to hang yourself on.
is very structured, and uses “tough love” to force you to do it “The
Way”… with the ultimate result being nice code that’s very easy to
(once you’ve figured out what goes where).
Incidentally, I’m supposed to be teaching someone else how to use Rails
scratch) in just under two weeks time - we’re going to attempt to
community website in one day… not quite sure it’s doable (though the
etc. stays the same), but it should be fun nonetheless!
All the best,
