Topic: Greetings

Hello

My name is Ciwan and I'm a Student Web Developer. We have started learning Ruby on Rails at University (only had one Lecture on it so far), so I thought I should join a good, helpful and active community on RoR.

I hope your community is such a community. smile

I looked around the forum, but could not see an Introduction section. So I thought I would do that here.

Anyways ... I hope I can learn a lot from here, and once I've learnt, I hope I can help others learn.

What good resources are out there, that you would STRONGLY RECOMMEND I View/Read ? Keeping in mind that I am a Total 100% n00b.

Thank You.

Hello Pull Monkey.

Thank You for the Welcome. I have just checked them two sites. They seem really good, but were well over my head. I could not understand a thing.

Do you know of Video Tutorials that are aimed at Beginners, but walk you through Ruby on Rails whilst building a practical application ?

E.g. a Blog engine ? an online shop ? ..etc

Thank You. smile
