I've never had such a difficulty with code before, Ruby is supposed to be easy, such BS, I can't get a hello world to display.

Is there a good tutorial out there on just getting started? I have it installed, but can't get it to work properly.

There were a few threads in the computer and programming area a few months back ... I'm not into it so I didn't pay too much attention but that might help. :big grin:

If you're struggling with Ruby itself, just about every web language now has multiple frameworks that implement the Rails concepts, so you could evaluate those that PHP has (though there's a lot).

the beauty of rails is not necessarily the framework, but the language itself

Even though the language is a big part of Rails, most people that go to it are doing it for the framework features like good MVC, scaffolding, ActiveRecord, migrations, Prototype/Scriptaculous integration etc - all of which can (and have been) applied in other platforms.

I find unless someone has programming in their blood, they can get what they want out of Rails out of existing frameworks, leveraging whatever language they already know.
