Really Getting Started in Rails

Really Getting Started in Rails.

Amy Hoy is a designer, programmer, and writer
digging into Rails. She read Curt Hibbs’ great introduction article on
Rails at O’Reilly’s OnLAMP, but decided she’d like to decorate it a bit
with why’s:

The only thing is, like all
tutorials, it doesn’t always explain why. Why is that the syntax? What
does that line mean, exactly? Why is the application designed so it
fits together that way? Me, I like to know why—in reality, because of
my designer brain, I have to know why to really grok it and retain it.

That decoration turned into a whole article entilted Really Getting Started in Rails that works very well as a companion to Hibbs’ original article. Great work, Amy!
