Rails: Toes dipped and The Water is Fine

Okay, so, as noted in my previous post, I was going full steam at rails. It has been about a week and I have my tutorials working, my Lynda and Treehouse accounts fired up…but even as went at it full go, I found myself caught in a snag. Time after time. After hours and hours enduring various training videos and online tutorials, I could follow along just fine, but it occurred to me that I was not “learning” anything. Although I could do the task, in the end, I did not understand what I was doing. I mean, there was only so many times some person on a video could tell me some word I have never heard of without explaining what it was. So, my paid accounts, like Lynda and Treehouse, sent me running to the web, hitting Stack Overflow and other places to get explanations. It wasn’t until I landed on http://ruby.railstutorial.org/, that everything sort of clicked. http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ takes you through the process of app creation to deployment…and best of all, it EXPLAINS what you are doing. So far, http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ has been an invaluable tool. I am now, glad to say, not just a handsome fellow, but one who has an app on git and Heroku.

Fist pump.
