Atom delicious digg it Got plans this summer? Good… because you're going to learn Ruby on Rails.

Welcome to the Summer of Rails

July 8, 2006

Hi, I’m Patrick Crowley and I’ve been writing Rails apps for exactly one week. So I guess that qualifies me as a newbie.

I’ve actually been drinking the Rails kool-aid since I crashed RubyConf last year, but until a week ago, I hadn’t done any real Rails development. And I had lots of excuses. Busy with other projects. A lot to learn. Living on the streets. (Ok, I made that up.)

But I bet I’m not the only slacker out there. If you’re like me, you’re going to learn Rails. And you’re going to make some cool stuff.

So why not get started now?

BTW, here’s what else I’ve got planned:

  • A database of projects, with screenshots, links, and descriptions
  • Tips for Rails newbies — Rails 101, deployment issues, etc.
  • Prizes for the best SoR projects — if you’d like to be a sponsor, please get in touch
  • Interviews with SoR developers

Your suggestions are welcome too!
