Where to find non deprecated docs?


#1

I started two weeks ago with rails and im amazed of what can be done in
a short time, i already finished the agile development with rails and
some of the tutorials at the documentation section of the
rubyonrails.com site.

But i realize that many of the tutos and examples around the web and
books are using earlier versions of rails (0.x.x) and some of that code
and coding practices are deprecated now, more now that rails 1.1 is out.

So my question is, where i can find actual info about rails, cause some
of the apps that i create following the web tutos now have errors, and
worst maybe are running without problems but not with the best way and
using actual sintax and coding practices.

I see that many of the people that are starting with rails feel the same
way, hope someone give me a hand and point me in the right direction,
cause i think im in love, php was just an affair.

There’s no time like the present to get involved and help out. As you
walk through existing tutorials, make notes about how and where they
break and what to do instead. Then work on rewriting the parts to be
fresh with 1.1 and help us improve.

We need the input of newcomers to keep the welcome fresh.

This mailing list is about the best possible reference for new Rails.
You
hit a snag, you ask here, one (or more!) of the core team will most
likely
answer your question. Then you can update the docs to match.
