Intuitive Guide to Ruby on Rails (RoR)
A Solutions-focused approach to providing Ruby on Rails programming
Having programmed in many different languages, making the leap to Ruby on
Rails is not for the weak hearted. The switch entails many less than obvious
nuances and the associated documentation of rails is quite light. To the
point where, much of the time required to make the switch is spent figuring
out just how to do certain tasks which unfortunately are unique to Rails.
Ultimately, there is a fairly substantial time savings in writing RoR
applications over using more convention methods and languages such as PHP or
other rapid development frameworks. This site represents my gradual learning
of the RoR language as best I can recollect each individual
accomplishment or "ah ha" moment along the way. The goal of this content is
to provide beginners with the basic resource they need to more smoothly make
the switch. Also, since much of the documentation of Rails provides only
references to previous versions which are NOT compatible with the latest
direction of RoR, this site serves a secondary purpose for
more advanced users to serve as a reference for those nuances they often forget.
Because the site is also solutions focused, within these pages I try to
provide all the details you need to quickly and painlessly implement these
solutions so you can spend more time customizing them for your own needs
rather than doing what I had to do which was learn the hard way - through
combing the Internet for breadcrumbs of knowledge that I had to piece
together to get it all tow work. Enjoy, and please send send me comments or
