Ruby on Rails ebook

Hi everybody

I am new to this group,it looks like a very active and great group.
I need your suggestions to get a beginner-professional Ruby on Rails tutorial.
Does anybody have an ebook?

Thanks

I believe that you can get the "Agile Web Development with Rails" book
as en e-book. That is a great book for beginners. Are you looking
specifically for tutorials or do you need the basics too?

Hi Robert
Thank you for your reply,
I need more professional programming tutorial.
a free resource! :slight_smile:

I basically understand and have done a little with php/mysql but don’t know anything about MVC or Ruby or CoC like that. Can you suggest me any good free ebook that would be suitable for beginners like me?

I have found this book to be useful when I started learning.

It teaches you different important concepts like authentication, test driven development (rspec), which you

will use in your everyday apps:

"Learn to Program (2nd edition)

by Chris Pine

For this new edition of the best-selling Learn to Program, Chris Pine
has taken a good thing and made it even better. First, he used the
feedback from hundreds of reader e-mails to update the content and
make it even clearer. Second, he updated the examples in the book to
use the latest stable version of Ruby, and also to use code that looks
more like real-world Ruby code, so that people who have just learned
to program will be more familiar with common Ruby techniques.

Not only does the Second Edition now include answers to all of the
exercises, it includes them twice. First you’ll find the “how you
could do it” answers, using the techniques you’ve learned up to that
point in the book. Next you’ll see “how Chris Pine would do it”:
answers using more advanced Ruby techniques, to whet your appetite as
well as providing sort of a “Rosetta Stone” for more elegant
solutions.

Here are a couple of resources for learning ruby and ROR.

http://tryruby.org/ for a basic intro to ruby

http://railsforzombies.org/ for Rails

I also have used the rails tutorial that Rails Rider mentioned

Take a look at http://railscasts.com/ for more in depth Rails topics.

Not sure where you are located, but sometimes libraries have good books on Ruby and some even have ebooks that you can check out.
