I’m running into a quagmire of RoR and Rails versions, and I’d like
some advice on what to use.
I’d like to set up a RoR environment where I can find ample examples
and possibly a couple of good books to help me along, but I’m not sure
which version(s) to use: Should I go for RoR 2.1, and if so, do I use
Ruby 1.9 (cutting edge option) or should I stay with RoR 1.2 and an
older version of Ruby?
I’m a big fan of the Pragmatic Bookshelf books, but both ‘cutting edge
version’ books (the pickaxe and the Agile Development with RoR) seem
to be in Beta.
Also, if I do choose older versions of RoR/Ruby, has anyone got any
experience with upgrading from these to newer versions? Will it be
Any advice/tips are appreciated.
