Which version of Rails do you recommend if I start a new project using
I studied RoR with Agile Web D. with Rails (1st edition) last
year, and found that there is new version 2.x out there - but, it was
very hard for me to find any book for Rails 2.0.
Do I have to stick with 1.x version of Rails?
Also, I wonder if the rails hosting companies do support the latest
version of Rails as well.
You should at least complete the construction of the demo application.
to the above book, I would also recommend the following as well:
“Simply Rails 2” by Patrick Lenz - a very good first book on learning
“The Rails Way” by Obie F. - an excellent reference on Rails 2.0
I’m looking forward to an update covering Rails 2.2
“Advanced Rails Recipes” by Mike C. and the Rails community - an
excellent cookbook (i.e. problem/solution format)
Lastly, you have the people here to assist you along the way.
