Topic: How long before you were very comfortable with RoR?

Hey everyone, I am just starting out learning Ruby and Rails, and I was wondering from some of you pros, how long it took before you started getting very comfortable with RoR, and what helped you out in the process? Also, did you know any web languages before (besides HTML or CSS)? Thanks!

Re: How long before you were very comfortable with RoR?

I came from a .NET/C#/VBA background, and had been developing for over 8 years when I switched to Rails. Took about 6 months to feel truly comfortable developing, without stacks of books always hovering nearby.

To get comfortable with anything takes years.

Depends on your background...

Learning just another language is a matter of practice.

Learning from scratch on the other hand:
