Hi,

Anybody able to share on this special ?

Ruby In Steel 2

Note the discussion about using the Visual Studio Express edition combined with this and Rails.

IIUC IronRuby is Ruby integrated with .NET, while Ruby In Steel is an IDE for Ruby.  No idea whether the latter can be used for the former.

Thanks.
I lost interest in this when I realized I would be working with a skeleton Visual Studio.

If I am going to learn this Ruby and rails stuff, I might as well learn it more native.

On a side note, a bit back I started to work through:

  Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Rails by Example

As far as I got, I found it to be pretty decent -- but then I discovered alternatives to Rails and got side-tracked :)
