Hello RoR Community,
I am involved in a new project, we have to build a dynamic website (no
surprise!), and I have to decide which technology to use. I come from
PHP, ASP (VBScript and then .NET, VB, C#) world. I coded a lot in
C#.NET for Win32 apps and have some Java Knowledge. I have been
following Ruby on Rails progress lately. I brought the "old" book
(which is now in Beta for the new version), Pragmatic Programming, and
I really like what I read on the book about RoR.
the basic library you have to go through is
The ruby programing language
The rails way
Ajax on rails
You can also start with Ruby for Rails as a soft ice breaker
Without understanding those three books and the API
you won’t be any close to start a complex project.
Don’t forget to add peepcode test screencasts to the pool,
but after you get the basic understanding,
You may be investing about two or three weeks, (at least, before start doing serious work)
but your productivity and personal value will be way higher.
Despite all this magic, I'd really like to get some feedback from
different RoR gurus or experienced people. Bad things you've seen,
good things, people who were working with PHP/MySQL and switched to
RoR. People who considers switching back to something other than RoR
and why? Etc.
because to really master RoR you have to learn Ruby upside down and read the whole Rails API
a lame, unprofessional coder will never find the drive to learn all what is needed to get starting with Rails.
(the how to write a blog in 15 minutes screencast is a booby trab)
The project has nothing to do with [http://amiestreet.com](http://amiestreet.com) but there are
some things there that we'd be implementing. (Users, Logins, Uploads,
Downloads, Basket, Checkout, Statistics, etc.). Only it has nothing to
do with music :)
I can't reveal much more per NDA. :(
Any insight or constructive comment would be appreciated.
Once you know Ruby and Rails your feelings will hurt if you use anything else.
Thanks in advance,
