Anybody willing?

Hey, I was wondering if someone would help me out through Skype a little
teaching thing. I just need a little push in the right direction so if
you could please email me @: matcsimpson@gmail.com thank you

I recommend the rails tutorial at:

http://ruby.railstutorial.org/

the tutorial is great and helped me a lot.

I concur. It can take you from practically no experience of Rails right
through set-up, gems, bundler, rake, Git, heroku, scaffolding, the MVC
schema & more all explained in a clear, concise manor.

Highly recommended.

Cheers,

You may also want to check Rails Mentors - http://www.railsmentors.org/ to find someone closer to you/in your timezone who will be available to help you out if/when you get stuck somewhere.

You can also go through the Zero to Rails 3 training videos from EngineYard. Here’s the link for the videos - http://www.engineyard.com/ruby_on_rails_training/learn_rails3

In addition to what others have said, if you can clarify your needs we
may be able to help you right here. What specific thing are you
having trouble with? (If it's pretty much everything, let's start
with the most fundamental one; solving that may solve other things
too.) What have you tried, that didn't work? What did it do instead?

Well Dave I'm not sure on how to explain but....Here we go.

So, I'm new to it all starting out with only some HTML knowledge. I want
to find ways to challenge myself to be able to make my first website or
a
new program BUT I'm really REALLY slow at learning all this. I've
spent almost 4-5 weeks just TRYING to get RoR to work with IDE's and
found
out that I need only the Terminal but how do I make the site..How
does it transfer...
So that's why I asked if someone would like to get on skype with me so I
can ask the person the questions. I'm probably missing out on a lot of
stuff but if you have something else I should know I'll take it.

As mentioned before, this tutorial will answer all those questions:

<http://ruby.railstutorial.org/>

Have you visited this site yet?

Cheers,

As in, you've never written a *program* (as opposed to a *web page*)
before? Okay, that's a lot more fundamental than I was thinking of.
There are many web sites that teach you to program, some using Ruby,
such as http://pine.fm/LearnToProgram/.

Or do you mean you've programmed, but all you know about how web pages
work, is HTML? There are many web pages that teach you how a web
server serves up a web page. Googling "how web requests work" (sans
quotes) should get you some good results.

After either of those paths, you can try some of the web pages that
teach you Rails, such as Michael Hartl's "Ruby on Rails Tutorial:
Learn Rails by Example", or "Rails for Zombies". If you didn't learn
Ruby "above", then some of these will teach you enough Ruby to get by,
but you'd probably be better off learning Ruby before this point.

Also see the Rails Guides that others have mentioned, though it can be
pretty heavy reading for someone new to either programming or web
apps.

Along the way you'll probably have some specific questions. You can
ask Rails questions here; more generic Ruby questions should go in the
Ruby mailing list, which you can find at ruby-lang.org. However, it
can be hard sometimes to tell which is which, so don't worry about it
too much.
