[Off-Topic] Before learning Rails


#1

Hi i just finished learning ruby. Ok maybe i would say i am comfortable
writing a ruby program. Before i start learning rails. I would like to
ask you all. Is it wise to learn both HTML & CSS together with rails at
the same time? Also i am using Agile Web D. with Rails 5. I
realize the book doesn’t teach you step by step process like ruby. Are
all the rails book in the market like that?

I don’t have much experience with Rails myself just yet. I would suggest
tackling html/css first. If your dedicated to learning it, you can pick
up a lot of html in one weekend. I mean really its just anchors, hrefs,
div, span, tables, listes, etc. To really grasp CSS, maybe a week.
You’ll build on your html skills while practicing CSS, pretty straight
forward. The resources that I use are listed below, in the order that I
use them. I dive into the free ones first.

codeacademy.com - because its free and a good primer.
w3schools.com - again because its free, loads of info
teamtreehouse.com - my personal favorite subscription. Worth it imo.

If your dedicated to learning it, I’d say give it a week and you’ll have
html/css down.
