beginning web development with ror, how?

Hi everyone,

I just realized that on my shared web hosting, RoR is supported. What to
expect from this in terms of developing a simple HTML5 web page to
advanced portal that includes forum board and mailing list? How do I
begin.

I have a shell access to this hosting, but not as root.

P/S: I'm not really a programmer, more of a sysadmin although I had
learned a bit of programming (java, c++, python, bash scripting & php)
during my schooling years.

By reading the Rails Guides at http://guides.rubyonrails.org . If
you're not already familiar with Ruby as a language, you'll also want to
read Programming Ruby ( http://ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby ).
http://tryruby.org might also be helpful.

Best,

thanks

I am just learning RoR myself, and about 90% through the "book" at
railstutorial.org/book/ - I wish I'd found it sooner, it's been a
great resource.

Then again, there's always this:

Fun read, but IMHO not a good learning book for beginners.
