Ruby on Rails is now firmly in the mainstream. A steady stream of people have good reasons to want to use Rails but don’t know where to begin. The resource list below is a solid starting point. It includes tutorials, books, blogs, podcasts and many other educational resources that have done wonders for me throughout my Rails learning process. I hope others will find them helpful too.
I personally enjoy interactive and visual experiences. The interactive tutorials (sometimes with a live person) were very useful to me. However, plenty of other people prefer to learn by reading, so I have included great resources for these folks too. I also recommend attending meetups and conferences. Getting involved in the community is a great way to find mentors who can help you out, and participating at events and user groups is a good way to stay on top of the latest news and cool projects.
If I’ve left out any resources you’ve found helpful, I would love to hear about them. Please share them in the comments section and I will update my resource list to include them in the future.
