installed RoR, now what?

General • Asked by Rino Mardo

after installing RoR, what is next? i looked around the guides and screencasts and all of them assume you already have experience with RoR!

where is the tutorial for newbie RoR developers?
how to be a full stack RoR developer too?

Hi Rino — speaking for myself, I started on a different website: If you're brand new to MVC development and Rails, it's a pretty wholistic A-Z tutorial including text editing, version control and hosting.
