Hello! Three days ago, I spent two hours each learning Ruby through Lynda dot com. This was not necessarily my first encounter with Ruby but I will say that it was the first serious attempt at learning to program in it. One thing that I did a month ago was to go through the highly recommended Ruby on Rails online book (approx 8 hours). This post will describe briefly what I thought. Let us get started.
Perhaps it might be of help(to those who might not know) to mention the fact that Ruby on Rails is NOT Ruby. Instead, Ruby on Rails (commonly written as RoR) is a Framework written in Ruby language.
