journey from .Net to Ruby

November 19, 2011 Leave a comment

about a year ago, i switched from the .Net stack to Ruby/Rails.  I dont feel religious toward either stack, i think of them both as a tool in my quiver.  i get many questions from .Netters looking to do the same thing, looking for tips.  So, here goes:

  • get your black belt in ruby first.  learn to write idiomatic ruby!
  • go thru the Rails3 tutorial http://ruby.railstutorial.org/
  • pick a good editor (RubyMine is an excellent choice!)

After I got thru these steps, i started to specialize knowedge thru the Railscasts and Peepcode screencasts.  And build stuff in your spare time using these tools!
