RoR, good for a beginner?

Hi every body!
I’m a French new user of RoR (thus, sorry for my english :slight_smile: ) and I
would like to know something.

I only made some simple web site with PHP, and I started RoR.
I’m pretty lost, and I don’t really know if everything can be made with
RoR, like a real e-commerce platform, mostly for a newbie who start from
0. (or a more powerful web application).
What should be the point of departure to learn to do it.
I saw some books for beginner, but they seems limited, and I don’t know
wich i have to buy.
What could you advise me, and how many time do I need to be able to make
e-commerce by myself.

Thanks a lot, and again, sorry for my english :wink:

I suggest for Ruby

Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmers’ Guide
Beginning Ruby: From Novice to Professional

For rails

Agile Web D. with Rails (latest edition I think 3)

And also check

http://api.rubyonrails.org/

or the following link being that you’re native French speaker:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/fr/

http://api.rubyonrails.org/

In addition to the above two links, I would recommend the following
resource for Rails:

http://guides.rubyonrails.org

This is usually in sync with the latest stable release of Rails. Last
but not least, Ryan B. screencasts are the best and can be viewed
here:

http://railscasts.com

On last word of advice, please do not try to learn everything in a day.
Just take your time to understand the concepts.

Good luck,
