Okay, I am new to rails. I see that the new release of rails does not apply to anything on the site with regards to tutorials including screencasts.
What I don’t understand is how I am suppose to learn Rails 2.0 if there is no docmentation for it. I did see that on peepcode there is a pdf for what has changed but how does that help me?
How do I get an understanding of the design principles of rails 2.0 using “ReST”. Is this what has changed from 1.2.6 in 2.0?
I guess I don’t understand Rails 2.0 design philosophy since I don’t understand Rest. So does that mean I have to learn ReST before I learn Rails 2.0? Also, can someone please tell me a very generic layman approach to what exactly ReST is? I mean I have read some docs on the internet and it totally confuses the heck out of me.
Is there any “Getting Started with Rails 2.0” tutorials out there? It seems to me to be a big shame that the AWDWR book is based on rails 1x yet Rails 2.0 is suppose to be what you should use if created a new Rails app. So with all that is on the internet with regards to Rails documentation it seems like there is actually 3 different frameworks “rails 1.1, rails 1.2, rails 2.x”
Somone please tell a newb how to make sense out of all this?
How am I suppose to figure out what my URL’s are suppose to look like (ReSTFully) if there is not any documentation for a newb wanting to learn rails 2.0. Maybe there is docs, and I am just missing it.
I surely hope that the answer to learning Rails is not to force me to go buy $9.00 videos from peepcode. Maybe Rails-core can make their own videos/screencasts for free, to entice us coming from PHP to learn rails… and those just wanting to learn rails a FREE way to learn it.
I really do want to learn rails, but how do I with regards to the above?
