I've been thinking about trying Ruby on Rails for some time now but every time I look at it, it just seems so complicated and difficult to get started with. I'm a long time PHP user and I have zero experience with ruby with or without rails. I know the RoR people claim you'll develop 10x faster with rails but I cant even get started.
Is there a comprehensive quick start guide somewhere that will take you all the way from installing ruby, rails & pref an ide on windows to developing your first functional project (ie. not Hello World) Also covering topics such as security and session handling since all the RoR projects I've seen in the demos can (and have been) editted by anyone. The RoR wiki has been completely trashed by spammers.
