Ruby developer. CTO. Swimmer. Always trying to write more
This is part of a series of articles which attempts to encapsulate everything I know about a subject at the time of writing. It does not mean I'm an expert.

I seriously started learning Rails back in around 2008 after a bad car accident and I eventually found a way to transition out of Java and into Rails for my full-time job. Everything has changed since then so, to be honest, I have no idea how to learn Rails in 2021. None of the resources I used are relevant today but people do occasionally still ask me how to learn Rails.
These are the places I’d currently point them to…
This is actually a revised edition of a book I have read… but back in the Rails 4 days.
This is a practical course written by Andrea, one of our developers at Podia. In it, you learn Rails by building Instagram, an app you’re probably pretty familiar with.
GoRails is the modern successor to RailsCasts, which provided me with that just-in-time learning when I was starting with Rails. The videos are great and the community is excellent.
