First things first, I am deeply interested in this thing now... I am getting more and more into this with each new experiment I come across.
As I mentioned, I have had my experience with web programming, (with Java, J2EE in 2001-2) but that was very different. I was a novice to IT industry in more than one ways... and if I compare what we had to do at that time to make one servlet run on a given app server, current effort looks minuscule. Its just so much more simple.. easy.. I like it.
In the meantime, I have been working on different technologies, really far away from the web world. But, after my brush with ruby, I am actively thinking of getting into more web based app development.
In the days that passed by, I have tried to follow a few tutorials which were really nice starters for me. I list them here...
- links courtesy Ruby on Rails site (www.rubyonrails.org). These tutorials might be old in time, but they are still excellent starts for ruby on rails
And then, I got hold of some books on ruby on rails...
Agile web development with rails 2nd Edition, is a masterpiece for rails starters. May be I liked it more given my background in programming, but I have to say, it just such a nice book... I really have to give the writer guys full marks for putting across such a nice book. Great work guys.. keep it up.
