Ruby on Rails. . .by now most people have heard the hype about it. It promises more effective code, total object orientation, and true MVC architecture to say the least. As far as my own personal experience, it has been all that and more. The code is beautiful, easy to maintain, and edit. In a recent project I was working on, it took me less than 10 hours to do the application, as compared to at least double that if I was writing in PHP. I’ve heard a lot of web developers that know other languages, usually ASP or PHP, that want to learn Ruby on Rails, but just don’t know where to get started.
Accelerating Your Learning If you have no prior development experience, one of the worst things you can do when learning Rails is to just dive in. Some of the concepts build on each other, so jumping in would be like signing up for a calculus class before you’ve learned algebra. Sure, you could muddle through it, but most of your time would be spent trying to figure out why things aren’t working. Another difficulty for a beginner is figuring out what to learn.
