Last week I began delving into Rails in order to work on MobileFolk. After a crash course in Ruby on Rails from my buddy Alex, I began writing my first pieces of code, starting with models. I spent two days and every line of Ruby I wrote made the gaps in my knowledge more and more obvious to me (and Alex).
I’ve decided to take a few steps back and do things the right way. This includes
- Setting up Xcode (since it is my environment of choice)
- Learning Rails properly using Agile Development With Rails.
Anyone thinking about giving Xcode a go for Rails development should look at this tutorial by Apple.
