Newbie advice


#1

Hello Everyone -

Newbie here. My programming experience is primarily SQL, SAS (if anyone
knows that), and a little tiny bit of ASP. Want to get going on Rails.
Any suggestions? Was thinking of “4 Days on Rails”. Thoughts?
Thanks - Brian

Welcome Brian!

I started with this book: http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/
rails/index.html

and I read this book kind of simultaneously since I was new to Ruby:
http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/ruby/index.html

My blog may or may not be helpful (it’s slanted a bit toward those of us
coming from a Microsoft background) but if you check out the “Getting
Started” and “Ruby Language” categories there might be something useful.

And of course to top it off is the community-run wiki on the Rails site
itself:
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails
