If you’ve been following along for a while, you know I’m on a quest to learn Ruby and specifically – Ruby on Rails. Back in May I started on Sam’s Teach Yourself Ruby in 21 Days. After the fourth time through day 15, I knew I needed some other assistance.
The inspiration to find the other assistance came from the How to set up a Ruby on Rails Weblog in 15 minutes quicktime movie. I ordered Agile Web Development with Rails, and in 2 days, I’m half way through the book with a better understanding of AJAX, web services, and a fairly useful project to show for it. Yes, you’ll start to see the changes.
Ruby and Rails?
Back in Day 1 of Teach Yourself Ruby I talked about the Principle of Least Surprise. This principle is how Ruby on Rails made web development fun again. I know that every two hours, I’ll have at a least one bug fixed and at least new featured added. Thanks David.
