Tomorrow marks the start of my third Ruby On Rails course. It’s going to be a 3 day course with a (somewhat lengthy) introduction to Ruby (and some of the joys of programming in a very dynamic language) with the rest of the time devoted to Rails. I firmly believe in hands-on training, so the amount of lecturing is minimal. And there are only 5 or 6 participants in the class. They will build an application from scratch – either something from their domain (or if they don’t have any idea) an application that I have thought out.
The course materials consist of the two books “Programming Ruby” and “Agile Web Development with Rails”. In addition, I created a 20+ page summary of the most used Rails commands, functions, classes. It’s based partly on the book and mostly on the source code and it’s documentation. Consider it a giant “cheat sheet” for rails.
I release it under a [Creative Commons] license.
There’s the PDF version [rails-reference-1.1.pdf] (480 kb) and the [HTML version] and you can check out the source code (it’s all written in plain text [Markdown]) in the [Subversion repository]. The [Changelog] will tell you what has changed.
Comments, feedback, corrections are welcome! Oh – and if you like it, feel free to [Digg it]
