    I've never worked with Rails before, though I am familiar with several programming languages, my favorite being PHP.

    From my understanding, Rails is a very capable Object Oriented Programming Language for the web based on a Model View Controller architecture.
    You will need a web server, or a local host testing server to develop with Rails.
    Like all Object Oriented Programming Languages, the basic syntax will vary, but the structure should be based on the same principals.
    Objects, variables, classes, database queries, all created to have a user interface (web page, mobile app, ect) return dynamic content (from database).

    Any specific questions?

    Ive got a friend who came up with a pretty cool idea for a website and he is looking for someone who specifically knows that type of coding.

    On a different note, Ive been considering going through a PHP certification program. A)what does a typical PHP guy make per hour and B)is it better to go through a certified program or just dive in and learn it through books and repetition? I know some basics but not nearly enough to go out and actively pursue a PHP job. Thoughts?

    Ruby on Rails sounds like a great drag queen name. Make sure you wax first before becoming this persona hip.

    What's your background/experience in programming? What languages?
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I am thinking about diving into PHP programming for starters and going from there. I have entry level PHP skills but think the market is going to be there for a prolonged period of time and careerwise would not be a bad choice in conjunction with becoming more familiar with Linux and Apache.

    I love PHP.

    LGK is a PHP site.

    Hip-
    If you can learn the basics of a LAMP stack (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) site, focused on PHP, you'll be able to develop and troubleshoot many of the most popular content management systems; Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, Elgg, and v-Bulletin. I make a decent supplemental income as a freelance Wordpress developer.

    HTML and CSS should be second nature, as your PHP codes ultimate goal will be to deliver dynamically created content to the end user as a well presented web page. Once you get the hang of the syntax and the structure of object oriented programming, the sky's the limit.
