So, I’m about to jump down the rabbit hole and learn Ruby on Rails.

So I somehow have wound up with access to a "Ruby bootcamp" series of lessons. It's about six different courses and I"ll be starting them tonight.

I have a few questions before I get started.

Here's a link:

How hard will this be considering the last "programming" was BASIC on my VIC-20, saved to cassette no less, in elementary school. Oh, and, most recently, some SQL Query from my previous position.

My laptop is a Windows machine. Should I try to run some distro of Linux from a flash drive as I learn this new skillset?

Considering a fair degree of aptitude for this sort of thing, how long should this 'Bootcamp" take and how long until I could consider myself employable with my newfound Ruby skillset?

Thanks in advance for any replies!
