Hi, I am former Visual Basic developer who's been resting on his
laurels for a while. And now finding that in order to work must learn
a new technology.
RoR looks like a great tool set to learn. And, finally, after many
years in a ms environment am excited to work in a clean and fresh
Just ordered some Ruby/Rails books - as recommended on various
websites. Joined this list (obviously) and prepped my Mac.
I'd like to learn by making an app that's interested me for a while.
Possibly spending a couple or more months over it.
Has anyone on the list got anything to share about their own
experiences of getting to know their way around RoR? Particularly
interested to hear about which resources / tools you use, and how you
did your learning - working through or dipping into a book. Stuff that
was particularly hard to get your head around.
Basically looking for tips and things to think about.
Thanks! And if there's an FAQ I should be reading, please point me there.
