Nuts and Bolts

In this part . . .

What's Ruby on Rails all about? And how do you install Ruby on Rails? And after installing it, how do you get started doing something with it? And what's really going on at Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico?

This first part of the book answers the basic questions about Ruby on Rails. But “basic” doesn't mean “lame.” For example, in Chapter 3, you create a complete Web application from scratch. You create the application in minutes, not hours. Then in Chapter 4, you find out what's at Area 51.
