I’ve been intrigued with this solution for some time now but had so much on my plate that I didn’t think I had time…until last week when I saw the book “Agile Web Development with Rails”. After browsing through it while sipping a cappucino, I realized that by learning RoR, I would actually have more time. On Saturday I searched for web hosting companies that support RoR and came across what I thought was an interesting company…
http://www.railsplayground.com/. I immediately signed up. BTW Joe Clarke (the owner??) was very helpful and got my account set up right away.

After installing everything including MySql and MySql Front on my own machine..I spent a couple of hours digging in.

Wow…

I hope that by mid – January, I’ll be in full RoR mode.
