[00:00:14] MichaelGG: I skimmed Metaprogramming Ruby book a few years ago and I wasn't sold. But right now it looks like I do either WordPress and deal with security hell and crappy plugins (and php...) or go with Ruby
[00:03:38] MichaelGG: Is the Ruby in 20 minutes worth doing? Or just start with The Well grounded rubyist
[00:07:59] MichaelGG: im travelling right now and wont be in a real country for a month but i need a site running next week
[00:13:29] MichaelGG: jeez manning. The download link works once unless you login. Meanwhile first google result returs full pdf.
[23:46:26] MichaelGG: Hi there! I'd like to use Ruby to use it to make a website (gonna make a simple blog/cms for my company). I've got a lot of experience programming, mostly C/C#/F#. Where should I start? If I use a RoR tutorial will I pickup enough Ruby on the way?
[23:51:03] MichaelGG: I guess I'm asking if the RoR tutorials from the ror site are suitable for also picking up Ruby or if I need to go learn ruby first. It looks easy enough
[23:51:47] MichaelGG: ive been in webdev for ~ 2 decades so i dont need a beginners guide just tell me what to do in ror/ruby
[23:57:15] MichaelGG: Just seems like for building little content sites, Ruby has more community, like it's easy to drop in A/B testing and stuff. Whereas ASP.NET MVC doesnt have that community and python's somewhere in the middle
