When I started learning Ruby on Rails a little over a year ago someone in the Ruby community told me there were currently on 164 developers in the United States. Over the course of the last year that number has grown exponentially. As with many next generation technologies the challenge is how to learn it. Often times the only resources for learning are workshops, seminars, books or online tutorials and examples. “This article will present the best Ruby tutorials, examples and downloads I’ve found over the course of the last year.
There has been a few occasions over the previous months when various people I meet have asked me to point them in the right direction to get started with ruby on rails.

Ruby on Rails is taking Web development by storm. Let's start with a refresher on the underlying technologies: Ruby is the free, simple, straightforward, extensible, portable, interpreted scripting language for quick-and-easy object-oriented programming that, like Perl, sports many features to process text files and perform system-management tasks. Rails is a full-stack, open source Web framework in Ruby for writing real-world applications with more ease and less code. Being a full-stack framework means that all layers in Rails are built to work together so you don't repeat yourself and can use a single language from top to bottom.
While it certainly makes no attempt to constitute a complete guide to the Ruby language, this tutorial will introduce you to some of the basics of Ruby. We'll power through a crash-course in object oriented programming, covering the more common features of the language along the way, and leaving the more obscure aspects of Ruby for a dedicated reference guide. I'll also point out some of the advantages that Ruby has over other languages when it comes to developing applications for the Web. Difficulty:
