Ruby On or Off Rails

I don’t know if I mentioned it, but I got interested in Ruby on Rails late in 2005.

I messed around with it a bit, got an extensive hosting account with a Rails friendly provider (for my business), and then stopped doing much with it. This isn’t because it’s not interesting or I came to dislike Ruby on Rails, but rather because I got sick of not knowing ruby.

Though I imagine it would have been possible to just push through and teach myself ruby and Rails simultaneously, I decided that I’d be happier if I just concentrated on learning ruby for a bit–and that’s where I am now.

I’m thinking that I might post exercises that I’ve done online for everyone’s entertainment and criticism. We’ll see if that happens though. I’m not completely sure if I want to leave a permanent record of clueless coding online.

One thought on “Ruby On or Off Rails”

  1. That is my impression learning Rails… I keep thinking, “how can people possibly learn this *while* learning Ruby? It’s hard enough for me to keep track of all of it already knowing Ruby.”

    The effortlessness of Rails stuff is way overhyped. But it is good stuff.
