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: https://www.railstutorial.org. 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.

I gravitate to the more advanced tutorials on GoRails, but it looks like there's solid basics in a few series here as well.

Hi Rino

One option is Andy Leverenz's https://justalever.com/work/hello-rails

You can also look at one of the Rails courses. This site gives an overview of some of them (note that these are on Rails 4 and Rails 5): https://digitaldefynd.com/best-ruby-on-rails-course-certification/.

A good Rails 6 basic course if the one from Pragmatic Studio but this costs a lot more: https://pragmaticstudio.com/rails.

Good luck with your studies.
