Three bravehearts who have an app idea & who are absolute beginner in Ruby on Rails are selected to be part of this experiment. They write about their path to develop their Ruby on Rails app on Codelearn blog once per week.
Ashish, who is the founder of Codelearn, guides them passively by dropping comments to the blog. The intention is to point them to appropriate resource depending on their taste, speed or inclination. They are free to discover resources they feel appropriate to learn Ruby on Rails. The conversation between them & Ashish will happen on their respective blog comments.
While the experiment should serve as a good series of posts for a newbie who is looking to learn Ruby on Rails, there will also be bits & pieces of general web development topics like how to decide on an MVP, which Rails server to pick, what CSS framework to use etc. It should be interesting & informative read for anyone who is looking to learn Ruby on Rails in particular or web devleopment in general.
