Hello all, just giving a quick introduction before I go back to lurking for now
I'm a C#/ASP.NET developer who is quickly becoming interested in Ruby/RoR. I've bought the book "Agile Web Development with Rails" and I'm starting to work through it, the only problem I run into seems to be a lack of any real "ideas" that I could turn into a RoR app in order to learn more of how things work; I can only learn so much by reading the book.. it feels like I'm not learning anything but just typing what I see, and then I see all of these advanced RoR applications online and feel as though I'm not going to be able to grasp it.
I've actually started to chronicle my journey with a brand new website/blog: http://www.rubykoolaid.com (I've only just started it, so it's a bit bare right now). I look forward to participating a bit more on the forums and groups for RoR in the future; I'm really starting to enjoy the language, the community and the framework.
