As a beginner, I never felt lost

This books is fantastic for someone with minimal coding skill. My level of skill was just being able to modify Excel macros I’d copy from the web, but I found this text did an excellent job of walking me through the process of creating a Rails app. One of the strengths of the book is repetition. You iterate through building the same app three times. The first is just a sketch of an idea. The second adds a little more complexity. The third iteration walks you through building a full application.
Great Way to Learn Ruby on Rails, for Beginners (like me) and for experienced programmers

I am not a programmer and I don’t know nor have I ever met Michael Hartl. But I warn you, this is going to sound like a paid social media person writing a puff piece for this book, but it’s not.
5 stars for a reason.

There is a reason that this book is rated 5 stars by myself and so many others. Put simply, it’s hands down one of the absolute BEST introductions to Ruby on Rails programming out there. What Hartl is able to cover in over 600 pages (teaching you to build a Twitter clone), is a truly comprehensive introduction to Rails and Test Driven Development (TDD using MiniTest). If you’re a beginner I’d certainly recommend going through the codeacademy Ruby & Ruby on Rails tutorials before diving in. Doing so will give you a background upon which to better understand some more complex information in the later chapters. If you’re an experienced programmer you may find more value reading the online edition. However, if you find yourself mentoring another developer or teaching a class I’d certainly recommend the book so as to reference page numbers and take notes for your students sake. My only critique: there were two spots where the code in the book either contained a typo or didn’t work properly as given; however, a quick check against the online version and Hartl’s Github repo for the sample_app fixed that issue without too much time lost. Bottom line, if you’re serious about learning Rails development and enjoy working through a book over watching videos/reading blogs get the Rails Tutorial now.
An all-time great programming guide!

I worked for many years as a professional programmer, and have been retired for a number of years. I have developed websites off and on for a number of years, initially directly coding in HTML and CSS and jQuery, and more recently using WordPress as a CMS.
which I also found to be considerably useful. The thing about this book is that

I have found this book to be suitably comprehensive for the programmer who seeks to learn the Ruby language and syntax swiftly and put it into practical web-development use. The book also includes tips relating to HTML and CSS design, which I also found to be considerably useful. The thing about this book is that, if you already have a project in mind and wish to roll it out on your very first Rails site, the book really helps you to get things done and saves you heaps of time wasted on Youtube tutorials and various help-sites.
Hope for tenacious improbables
Okay – so I am not all the way through it yet … but I have been impressed thus far with how Hartl approaches teaching total imporbables such as I how to ‘code’ in Ruby. The book, if nothing else, enables you to understand the eloquent logic of Ruby and how one can ‘put together’ a web app. This does not mean that you will then be able to write an app (unless you are just strangely gifted / intelligent) – but it does mean that you should have a sufficient understanding of how a web-app in Ruby works to proceed to higher levels of Rubyhood. I realise that really all the magic is under the hood and that Ruby is really just the steering wheel, gear shift and brakes (i.e. the controls) compared to what must be happening in the engine compartment (which as the analogy goes – only the real engineers and mechanics need know about). Still, this book is a leading example of effectively teaching the most unlikely of folks how to drive safely… and so kudos to Hartl. It follows that one will likely need to invest in advanced driving lessons thereafter… in order to be able to effortlessly do donuts etc… And lastly, if the code from the book isn’t working, it’s not the book. It’s YOU – go away and check your work.
Great view at web development with Rails, with no prior knowledge assumed
From a beginner’s perspective, this tutorial seems to be a great way to get you working toward developing a single, complex web project using Ruby on Rails. The book is really easy to follow and I haven’t encountered any errata so far that can cause big headaches with using introductory books on coding. Hartl teaches his tutorial using a test driven development methodology, which is helpful in getting readers to start thinking about how to develop their own projects.
The best introduction to Ruby on Rails I have ever read
This is a phenomenal book for learning Rails. I am an experienced web developer and found the author’s approach to be excellent. He not only teaches you Rails, but gets you using git and even deploying to Heroku in the very first chapter, and he approaches the entire book with Test Driven Development from the start. Unlike other books that devote a section or chapter to the subject, he structures each chapter with the creation of tests first, which is excellent development practice.
Wonderful book with an updated/corrected version available online if needed.
This book is available online for free via the author’s website. Having said that, I use the printed version and really enjoy it. I do find I reference the online book quite often for updated commands (SUPER HANDY).
Good but needs revising

It’s a great book for learning how to be a “web developer” that coincidentally teaches you rails.
