Hello, ive been programming PHP in almost 4 years now, and I want new challenges! Ive started learning Ruby. I now know the most common things, as if statements, loops, variables, classes, functions and stuff like that. Then I came to a website with the header Ruby On Rails. I became interested, and wanted to find out what that was about. I found rubys official site and I started reading. Since i didnt understand that much, and my installation of ROR didnt went quite well im at the same spot where i was before! I dont know anything about ROR. First when I googled the subject i think i understand a bit of it. I think that ROR is a helping program - a sort of WYSIWYG editor for ruby that helpes you making applications quicker. Is that right, or am I totally wrong? PS. Sorry for my bad english! :-)

" Rails is not an editor of any kind, it's a collection of Ruby libraries that help you quickly write database-backed web applications. If you want to write websites in Ruby, Rails is one popular way to do it (there are others). I'd just suggest you start with the official website (rubyonrails.org), read as much as you can there, and then feel free to come back to the list with more questions. Jeff softiesonrails.com

Under Brand X, you typically must write a little code here, a little there, and a little somewhere else just to add a feature, such as one more database variable with an on-screen representation. Under Rails, you typically must write much less code to get something done. This makes you feel like those two different layers are much closer to each other, instead of much farther apart. -- Phlip http://www.greencheese.us/ZeekLand <-- NOT a blog!!!
