Announcing a new Meetup for Silicon Valley Ruby Meetup!

What: Rails 3.0 Tutorial for Newbies

When: Saturday, November 20,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $50.00 per person

Where: Red Rock
201 Castro St
Mountain View, CA 94041

A step-by-step introduction to Rails 3.0 for newbies. Personal attention given to each student. The structure can be customized according to the students background.

The 4 hour session will give you enough fundamentals and also show you the usual work flow of
a Rails developer. How they go about solving problems while developing an app.

Before the Class : Installation
You need Ruby 1.8.7 or later, Rails 3.0 , Ruby gems version 1.3.7.

Ruby 1.9.1 is not compatible with Rails 3.0. Please install Ruby 1.9.2 instead. Here's a couple of links about it: See the blue note on: says "Ruby 1.9.1 is not usable because it outright segfaults on
Rails 3.0, so if you want to use Rails 3 with 1.9.x jump on 1.9.2 for smooth sailing."

Upgrading Snow Leopard to Rails 3.0 Beta 4
Installing Ruby 1.9.1 on Snow Leopard

Before the Class : Optional
Please follow the tutorial here : We will be working on this blog app in the class. Some of the things on this tutorial is out dated for Rails 3.0 beta 4. I will also be explaining things that is described in this tutorial from a different perspective. It usually connects all the dots together and the student will be able to see how all the concepts fit together.
