What is ruby? Can I use it for web programming?
I have heard about ruby on rails but am really unsure of what it is. I am a current PHP programmer and have tried other languages but haven't liked them that much. Are there any books on ruby on rails or simple web programming tutorial sites?Have a good day.

Ruby is a language and you can use it for web programming, in exactly the same way as PHP if you wanted, but you really want to look at Rails which is a full-stack framework.
The best resource for Rails right now is the book Agile Development with Rails. Check out www.rubyonrails.com for API docs and a Wiki though. See the "Ruby Resources" thread too as you are going to want to learn Ruby first to get the best out of Rails.
