Diving into Ruby on Rails

One of my missions in the coming year is to learn and get to know Ruby on Rails, and working with Ubuntu Linux. Here are the resources I’m currently using to get to learn Ruby on Rails:

  • Listen to The Ruby Show podcast – to listen to what rubyists talk about (hint – lots of tools and extensions you’ve never heard about)
  • Go to for a 15 min. interactive Ruby tutorial in your browser
  • Go to for an interactive and fun Ruby on Rails Tutorial and labs, inside your browser.
  • Get the book Rails 3 in Action from Manning. It’s a well written and nicely composed book, that starts from the basic -  doing spec and test first rails applications.
