I want to learn rails. I know ruby.

I'm currently working with typescript if it helps.

I think you can start by taking the free courses on thoughtbot.com/upcase and then take a deep dive into the Rails Guides while tackling a real world project (or at least one that you would use yourself). That way you get to hit some hiccups, search for solutions and trust me you will not forget that way.

Given that release 6 have just been released,

railstutorial.org
pragmaticstudio.com/courses/rails
hellorails.io
pragprog.com/book/rails6/agile-web...

The most important is knowing and understading ruby code because ruby is different from other language Rails is just a dsl on top of ruby so I would reccomend learning ruby most and foremost

There are a few good resources out there:

  1. As already mentioned, Michael Hartl's rails book is very useful railstutorial.org/book
  2. Gorails gorails.com/ has a lot of useful tutorials.
  3. Webcrunch web-crunch.com/ also provides lots of guides on how to build full websites with rails.

I teach Ruby on Rails by providing a mix of free online resources, mentoring, and troubleshooting at least an hour every week remotely, holding you accountable and making sure you're headed in the right direction. I charge $45/hr. If you want to learn more, email me at rootstechnology.info@gmail.com

I'm a self taught Ruby on Rails developer that's been through Techstar's as the sole engineer for a startup, and lead the engineering team on a Shark Tank start-up as well.

I learned using pragprog.com/book/rails6/agile-web.... It’s a fantastic book where you start out by walking through building a real app then get into some particulars.

Try the top rated courses on Udemy! For $10-20, it's a pretty great deal, especially if you already have fundamentals. I learn much better with video, so it works really well for me.
