Suggested books for the complete Noveice

Hi,
I am new in this group, if I want to learn rubyonrails what should I do
first. I am very much interested to learn rails as I saw a video and
make
simple blog following that and then I started feeling that I should
learn
this language. About me, I have completed the basic java and I
understand
OOP concept and I can understand and write php codes.

If I get some suggestion from you it would help to find the way fast and
easy to learn it completey.

Although it is libre, it has a libre free (as in beer) version online
and a libre comercial version in PDF .

Thanks, to all my dear for your helping hand.

You will also need Ruby, the Pickaxe book is highly recommended
(http://www.pragprog.com/titles/ruby/programming-ruby) and SQL of
course assuming that you are using a conventional database.

Yeah you do need to learn Ruby to use Rais, but the good thing is that
most
beginner and even some advanced Rails book make an assumption you do
not. It
was for me like that, and I learned both simultaniously :slight_smile: Now **I
remember
how hard it was for the authors to explain symbols, but now its so
obvious.
I feel like this particular concept really should be ‘felt’ rather
‘learned’. Good learning :slight_smile:

Oh and I would recommend book “Foundation Rails”. I like that one the
most
from the crowd. That covers Rails 2.x very well. Rails 3 got some very
new
things comming, but at least Amazon search gave me only results for
books
that are only for pre-order as of now.
