Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume
Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
Cheat Sheet - what do you need for Ruby on Rails?
Here is a "cheat sheet" of the commands you might use to install Ruby, then Gems, then Rails, then get your first application and server running.
tar xf ruby-1.9.1-p376.tar.gz
[root@easterton ruby-1.9.1-p376]# ruby -v
2. Ruby Gems
ruby 1.9.1p376 (2009-12-07 revision 26041) [i686-linux]
RubyGems is a sophisticated package manager for Ruby.
See http://docs.rubygems.org/ ...
Set up gems once you've installed Ruby via:
gem install rails
4. Create a framework for your first application
5. Start the server
Browse to http://localhost:3000/
