Finally really working on Rails
After several false starts we have a project at work where we are looking at using Rails. So far so good. I'm using http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ruby-on-railshttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif-tutorial-book as my tutorial and so far it is my kind of book. I'm using the bitnami rubystack virtual machine using Rails 3 in ubuntu. There have been a couple of hiccups along the way. 1) is remembering to use sudo on the VM for most installs and updates and even running the server to test the appliction. Not a HUGE deal, but a minor annoyance. Also, when doing the push the first time to deploy to heroku, I got an error saying that heroku does not appear to be a git repository. The fix for that is here.
