I think I picked a poor time to dive into and start learning Ruby on Rails. I’ve been reading and going through exercises from a fresh install and the plethora of great examples aren’t matching the new environment. It’s pretty close, but that little off from “right on the money” can be a real pain.
I’ve been primarily learning from Ruby on Rails: Up and Running, which is a pretty good text for getting started. The only downside is that it apparently just missed the Rails 2.0 thing with a couple of examples.
