Ruby on Rails Thursday, August 25, 2016

The easy way to get started is to install a virtual machine running some version of Linux or set up your computer to dual boot with a version of Linux.  It is generally held that Windows is not a great platform for ROR development.   I would use VirtualBox and load Ubuntu Mate but that is my personal preference.  There are many choices and most will work a lot better than Windows.  Most developers do not use an IDE.

Hey Guys!

I am a Computer Science student. I know basic programming and Object-Oriented concepts. I have some experience in web development but have no clue about RoR. I wish to learn it. I have installed Ruby 2.2 and Rails 5 on windows. Should I download an IDE? if yes, which one? The tutorials I find are mostly for Linux or Mac. Can anyone recommend some good links where i can get started? I would really appreciate it!
