My last attempt to get started, I told my raspberry pi to install ruby, and it had to build from source. I left it churn away over night, and that was eventually completed.
Today, I told it to install the rails version specified in the tutorial, and well....
#rubyonrails #raspberrypi that took awhile... 13780 seconds! Most of the time was spent on the docs! pic.twitter.com/XugP2EyTUeThis is what I saw after My wife and I woke up at 3:30 to watch the Australian Open.

While watching, I was able to work my way though the first chapter, deploy locally (to my raspberry pi), to 'production' to a heroku account.
So far it's all been about infrastructure, so I'm looking forward to chapter 2, where you start the 'toy' app so I can begin to see how ruby and rails really work together!
