Rails training

I asked this in the Rails forum, but no replies, so…
Will any recommend quality training, online or instructor lead of rails
for beginners? Do I need to have a solid background in Ruby first? I
don’t, its more beginner too, but I have been writing Perl for 8 years
now.

thank you!

There is an excellent course offered from the Big Nerd Ranch in Atlanta.
Check it out http://www.bignerdranch.com/
Charles Brian Q. is the instructor and he is really good.
If you decide to go, tell them Rachel N. sent you. :slight_smile:

Thank you,
Rachel S Nichol

Hi Derek,

I did it the hard way, I bought the Agile Web D. with Rails
book,
read it multiple times, then built the depot demo app multiple times (I
kept
screwing up and missing a step or two). Download the code from the web
site
and keep it locally, it makes things way simpler.

I now have a beginner’s concept of Rails, many of the subtle techniques
still elude me, but I have built successful web apps with Rails.

For someone with 8 years Perl experience, that’s the way I’d recommend
too. Buy the pragprog Programming Ruby book too (but not the 1.9
version)

Yeah, but I do program daily like some here. I use it as a tool in my
HPUX, AIX, and SUSE sysadmin belt. I have many ruby and rails pdf
files, but i enjoy classroom style learning so I am strongly considering
taking this:

What you think? Anyone know of these two gentlemen?
