I have been writing blogs on Ruby on Rails but none of it looks beginner-friendly even to me. Internet is full of free tutorials but curating is the hard part. So I thought instead of reinventing the wheel, let's post a list of tutorials that I found helpful during my early days of Rails.

Too many cooks spoil the broth
There is a sea of courses on Rails but if I would have mentioned all of them just for the sake of a huge blog, it wouldn't be different than a fuzzy Google search.
Going through the course is just the beginning of your Rails journey. To become proficient in Rails, try to build products using the acquired knowledge. Start with building an MVP and then incrementally add features to it. It is difficult to get motivation for building a product without any reason so the best way would be to participate in Hackathons.
Thanks for reading. If you find it helpful, do share it and hit a thumbs-up.
