OK, my first ever Ruby on Rails gig is also a paying gig. I can't go into too much detail at the moment, but I just started moonlighting on a Rails project for a friend of mine. It's a fairly small site, basically to provide some information about his consulting practice and to give access to his articles and scheduled appearances. As such, it is pretty much the perfect starter Rails project.
My first step was to generate a rails project and "pour" his prototype into the public directories. Having done that, I can start the rails server and look at the content as served by rails. This will give me something to refer to while I move bits of the static content over into view implementations.
Next steps are to get the code into a repository at the hosting service, so we can start collaborating on the app. I'll post more details here, as appropriate, as the project proceeds.
