As far as I have seen, to learn ruby on rails you need to know
several web programing languages as HTML, XHTML, XML,
and finally Ruby on Rails.
I disagree. I barely knew CSS when I started with RoR, still don’t
know PHP, have only recently learned the basics of JQuery, and haven’t
seen any need at all in RoR for XHTML, XML, or Python. It’s perfectly
though they do help make good responsive sites. You could come into
RoR knowing basic HTML and be pretty well set to start learning RoR,
picking up what little JS or CSS or Ruby you need along the way.
So I am creating this new course which will be in spanish from zero.
As in, teaching all of the above? That sounds rather daunting.
My question is : What is your opinion? Do you think all this will be
necessary to be a really well prepared programer for ruby on rails?
An admirable goal, but not necessary. There are plenty of RoR books
that assume the reader knows HTML and the general concepts of
programming, and teach them just enough of everything else along the
way. Or at the very least, expose them to little enough of it that a
decently intelligent person can learn what they need by Googling. I
think if you take that approach, and develop a good course in Spanish,
that would be a great service to the world.
Alternately, and probably easier than developing a course from
scratch, you could translate some of the more popular tutorials into
Spanish, if that hasn’t been done yet.
