  I've had somewhat mixed luck with Agile Web Development in Rails.  I highly, highly recommend "The Rails Way" by Obie Fernandez, though.  Make sure to get the latest one, "The Rails 3 Way", if you're using Rails 3 -- the differences are substantial from Rails 2.

  And since it's a chance to toot my own horn...  If you know at least basic Rails, I've just written up a nice Rails 3 tutorial on putting together an app with Devise and nested resources.  Check it out, if you're so inclined:  "http://blog.angelbob.com/pages/refactor1".  There are two parts now, with more to come.

Suyahsh,

There are many, many excellent resources for learning rails. I would start with Agile Web Development in Rails by David Thomas. If you want to learn Rails 3, start with Fourth Edition. If you want to learn Rails 2.x, start with the Third Edition. If you haven't started a project, then go with Rails 3 since the release candidate should be out later this summer.

Definitely check out railscasts.com by Ryan Bates.

At the next meetup, ask members how they learned rails, which blogs to follow, and which websites they use.
