General information
Description
"An Introduction to Ruby and Rails" is the white paper from my pre-conference session at Southwest Fox 2010. It introduces both the Ruby language and the Rails framework, focusing on their installation and use on a Windows® platform with a perspective geared toward experienced Visual FoxPro® developers. I hope that anyone reading this paper finds it to be a good starting place for VFP developers who are interested in Ruby and Rails. It's probably unique in its perspective, but there are literally hundreds of great resources out there. The paper includes references to several of the ones I found most useful.
