I am learning Rails

by Matthew Bartlett @ 2:32 pm

In the process of getting your development environment up and running, you may find that you spend a lot of time getting everything just right. The learning process for editors and IDEs is particularly long; you can spend weeks on Sublime Text or Vim tutorials alone. If you’re new to this game, I want to assure you that spending time learning tools is normal. Everyone goes through it. Sometimes it is frustrating, and it’s easy to get impatient when you have an awesome web app in your head and you just want to learn Rails already, but have to spend a week learning some weird ancient Unix editor just to get started. But a craftsman has to know his tools, and in the end the reward is worth the effort. (source)

A book I made

by Matthew Bartlett @ 9:23 pm

As far as I know, this is the first book produced by Enspiral.
I believe you can buy it at Whitcoulls.
