I keep getting asked what my favorite coding resources are, Rails or otherwise, so this is an attempt at keeping a running list, in no particular order. I fully intend to come back and edit this post as I stumbple upon new resources.
There are a lot of really great blogs from people writing Rails, and sometimes when googling something, I see amazingly written posts on fairly esoteric subjects. The resources below tend to be consistently good and conventional – and enough to keep new developers occupied for a long, long time.
They have a lot of overlap, but since they come out on different days, sometimes it’s nice to see a reminder that I meant to read an article or explore a new gem.
Practicing Ruby – well worth the $8/month they suggest paying.
Ruby Tapas – also well worth the $9/month subscription fee.
http://railscasts.com/ – amazing, well worth the subscription fee, although older poscasts are all free.
CoderCareer – not Ruby/Rails-specific, but lots of cool content discussing coding interview questions and how to answer them. Gets updated very rarely though.
Ignita – also rarely updated, also lots of cool content.
A Tornado of Razorblades by Adam Wiggins, a founder of Heroku. – also rarely updated, also pretty cool.
Justin Weiss. Updated less often than many people would like, but still an amazing read.
Official Rails Weblog – great way to get a gist on what is happening in Rails.
Ruby on Rails subreddit – not the best daily read, and it’s too easy to get distracted by the cat memes in other subreddits, but cool to check out once in a while.
RubyFlow – community-sourced. Content varies from “what’s new in Rails 5” to discussing very technical subjects.
RubyInside – archive of some cool reads.
Blog by Arkency, a dev shop. These guys know what they are talking about.
