Tutorials for RoR Beginner (Experienced Programmer) geared toward Social Network Development?

I’m sure just the thought of another Social Network site makes you
shudder.
Trust me, I have no desire to create the next Facebook. However, I do
have
an idea that will fulfill a need in an offbeat niche that isn’t being
met.
I’ve tried in the past to pay people to do the work but that didn’t work
out.

Now I find myself unexpectedly unemployed and thus with some time on my
workaholic hands. I do happen to be a programmer by trade, though my
“day
job” has kept me out of mainstream programming for a while. I’m overly
familiar with Tcl and I know enough PHP to do some serious damage to
something – No, seriously. It’s like Spanish. I could probably wing my
way through reading it okay but writing it on my own without backup
probably would lead to an International incident. :stuck_out_tongue:

So, anyway, I saw there was an actual book on Ruby on Rails that was
basically a tutorial with the end result being a basic social networking
site. I like the idea of having something other than “Hello, World”
blinking on my screen. However, reviews indicated it was very out of
date
because Rails has had new versions which have caused huge differences
between what’s in the book and what’s in the current version. I get it.

So, my question is: Are there any tutorials or books that step-through
the
basics and teach RoR in a practical methodology so the end result is
building blocks that the student can clearly apply or even where the end
result is actually a working useful application – preferably something
like a social network? :stuck_out_tongue:

I am highly motivated. As I mentioned I have both time on my hands and
what I think is going to be a very popular, possibly profitable idea. If
someone were willing to work with me and teach me, I would be willing to
share in the rewards.

railstutorial.org which is free to use online.

This is mentioned only a very few times each day on this list.

i suggest trying this on:
http://rails-4-0.railstutorial.org/book/beginning

That was starting point for me before 2 years and it’s been great. But
after it i wouldn’t spend much time in tutorials. Start building your
app.
That’s where you learn the most

If you’re looking at something social network directed, and are ok with
a
monthly subscription cost, TeamTreehouse.com has rails tutorials that
focus
on building a social networking site closer to facebook. (The Rails
tutorial mentioned by others builds a twitter clone).
