I had heard about this on one of the Rails podcasts I listen to (probably Ruby5 from Envy Labs who produced Rails for Zombies). Rails for Zombies is a basic intro to Rails 3. More importantly, it’s Zombie themed and who doesn’t love Zombies? Since I’ve got about a year of Rails under my belt, it sounded a bit too basic but I decided to give it a whirl anyway. These guys did a nice job, even hitting some of the common questions about how to do certain things that most online tutorials don’t hit, such as passing parameters to controllers via the router. This doesn’t stand alone, but is a nice, quick, hands-on lab and it points you to other resources to dig deeper. One of those is Michael Hartl’s Rails 3 tutorial which I also highly recommend, largely because of it’s depth and focus on test-driven development using RSpec.
