    Question Where to start learning Ruby & Rails?

    Hi

    I just want to know if someone wants to start learning about web development with Ruby & Rails where should he start from if his background as following:

    - Knows how to iuse HTML
    - Knows a little bit of CSS
    - Just that ! (did not touch SQL or server side development before)

    Now, where the beginning should be from? Ruby language for example? then what?
    Is there a book that teach how to build a site with Ruby, Rails and MySQL?

    The best resource I have seen are the official rails guides http://guides.rubyonrails.org/
    Thorough, well maintained documentation on all the latest features.

    I agree that Learn Ruby the Hard Way is a great resource, it's where I went to pick up Python. I also suggest SitePoint's Rails book, in their bookstore. It was a good read, and a good introduction to Rails concepts. For an introduction to Ruby, if you enjoy printed resources, the Pragmatic bookshelf series is great as well. Their book "Learn to Program" is a very basic but well written introduction to programming concepts in general, but using Ruby through-ought the book.
