Hi there… I’m a Ruby Newbie, and I’m starting to delve into Ruby on Rails. Anyway, my dear mother (I’m 30 years old, by the way, you think I’d be old enough to decide which language I want to learn) for whatever reason is convinced that I should do PHP and not Rails. Quite frankly, I’m sure that PHP is great, and I use stuff that has PHP and I can hack it, but I want to learn RoR. (Again, 30 years old here.)
In any case, my mother does a lot of SEO and has affiliate sites… she is convinced that Ruby can’t do that type of stuff and has challenged me to show her any dynamic sites done in Ruby on Rails, and any affiliate or eCommerce sites. As I’d quite rather spend my time learning RoR, as opposed to scouring the web for sites to justify my choices (again, 30 years old here!) I was wondering if any of you RoR peeps would know of sites that I could use as proof. LOL. I can’t believe I’m even posting this request, but it’s in absolute desperation.
THANKS so much.
