Collection of good Ruby on Rails Learning Resources

on Sep 23 in Web Development by

Lately I’ve been dabbling in the Ruby on Rails fad that seems to be sweeping the web app world. Partly out of curiosity, but mostly out of wanting to extend my skills beyond my current skill set. So far, It’s been an interesting experience, learning a new programming language, as well as, a brand new MVC framework. I’ve worked on personal projects using PHP frameworks in the past ie. Codeigniter, but Rails has been a significantly different experience and I am glad to say it’s been mostly positive. My next step will be to create a pet project using Rails, and I’ll make sure to post a follow up when I’ve completed it. If your interested in learning Ruby on Rails, here are a few of the tutorial resources I’ve been utilizing to make the jump:

This tutorial was my favorite, simply because it takes you from the very bottom to working rails app. It also has a lot of information regarding TDD(test driven development) using rpsec.
