Topic: Group Projects and RoR
I'm actually a little surprised; I've picked up a pretty decent-sized beginning chunk of Ruby on Rails pretty quickly by working on one of my own projects the past few weeks. I'm about to start a semester-long development process with five others here at school, and we're going with RoR.
I apologize up front for this sort of questioning, but it's hard to find the broad overview of topics like this- most of the time you're stuck looking at individual components. I've never worked on a substantial project like this before, so what sort of technologies should I be looking at, is there anything Rails-centric that I should keep in mind, and are there any other things I should look into? I'm guessing we should start looking at Subversion, but I really haven't used it before, and I'm unsure how everything would best hook into Rails.
So basically- what's your broad overview on this topic area? If you could give me some pointers and areas to look into further, certainly I can Google my away around with the best of them, but again, it's harder to see how it all works together sometimes. Thanks!
