Re: Re: Ruby book for beginner


#1

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I would probably quite like a fairly
verbose book to start with. Ruby seems to be fairly loose syntactically (if
there is such a word?) so a fairly firm guide is needed to start with :o)

I also kept hearing about difficulties in finding Rails hosting out
there. Have
anyone else found this to be the case in commercial/free hosting
options? other
than running your own server that is…

I run http://www.soyhost.com/ . I’m hoping after finals slow down to
actually get everything going on over there, but it’s free Rails
hosting. You don’t get a boatload of space, but it’s something to
start with.

If you’re able to spend a little money then I suggest DreamHost or A
Small Orange; I’ve had a great experience with both of those using
Rails.
