How to get started?

Abhinav Anand asked in General

Hi I'm a complete beginner to Rails, however I know other backend languages. I see a lot of courses here. Can anyone tell me the series of courses I should take up here?



I'm unsure which videos on here would be a good place to start, but if you're new to Rails, I think learning the fundamentals of its magic would be valuable. Have you been programming in Ruby for a while? Or other languages?

When I first learned Rails, I lacked an understanding of what was Ruby, and what was Rails... Learning pure Ruby, was a game-changer for me... Then I learned about how Rails works... Even simple things like the controller action will automatically render a view with the same name unless otherwise specified...

Maybe Chris would be able to point you in the right direction to some 'build simple a app' videos... Then come back here for the complex, cool stuff!?
