rails beginner training

Will any recommened quality training, online or instructor lead of rails

for beginners? Do I need to have a solid background in Ruby first? I

don’t, its more beginner too, but I have been writing Perl for 8 years


thank you!

For instructor led courses, I would recommend the following:


For online resources, I would recommend the following:


Next, I would recommend the following books:




Futhermore, if you’re looking for a deeper understanding of the

Ruby object model, you might want to take a look at the following

screencast series:


Note: The above series is worth its weight in gold.

Last but not least, this is a minimum list of resources that should get you on your way to

getting a firm grasp of both Ruby and Rails and it’s also good but not necessary to have a

good understanding of Ruby before you begin Rails.

Good luck,
