Rapid Rails Development?

I'm curious how long people take to build a typical website in rails.
I appreciate that there is no "typical" project, but I'm trying to
get an idea of how long it might take to implement some ideas I have.

Perhaps you can point to a site you have built at say that took me
(and x number of others) "2 days" / "2 months" / "2 hours". Or, i can
build a simple online shop in xxx days.

The last full cycle web development project I worked on was in asp
/sql several years ago - an online record store. The bulk of the
work probably took a couple of months.

Thanks

In general I've heard, and my experience tells me, that sites like that
usually take about half as much time as classical ASP. But it is hard
to say, depends on who's working on it, what the requirements are, what
your deployment requirements are, etc.

If you're interested, we're running a one-day workshop in Chicago for
ASP developers who are now learning Rails. There's a link to the full
announcment in the sidebar of our blog at softiesonrails.com.
