In lieu of a tutorial this week, I thought I’d come up with a list of the resources I use when working on my Rails projects.

I’d recommend going over all the guides that are linked there to learn about all the different parts that make up a Rails project.

I put a permalink in the menu bar at the top of the page, so you can click it on any page to go to the list of resources and find a guide or tutorial to help with whatever problem you may be up against. I’ll update this page whenever I find new links to sites that I find to be useful in learning or working with Rails.
