After twitter, many people are ready to do projects with ruby on rails, let me tell you frankly i dont know even a inch about it, I just know basic languages like javascript, xml, html , asp. Give me a roadmap how to read ruby on rails and master at least before 2010 year end.

Edited by mhenry: i missed a word, that will change the meaning of it.

Start with learning bash and setting up a development linux machine, either virtual or dual-boot.
It will really save you in time and effort later down the road.
Then, install ruby on rails, and read through and do the first ruby on rails introductory guide http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html and go through that.
Then, try to experiment and make a few programs. http://stackoverflow.com/ is an extremely good resource, and so are blogs you'll find online googling around for a solution for a program.

No. Do not try to develop online.
One, that will strain the shared host.
Two, you will be frustrated (only after 5 support tickets was I able to get mongrel working).

I would seriously recommend a ubuntu (desktop) virtual machine (or whatever distro you would like) to develop.

It's also a good idea to learn BASH a little so you can run the scripts and such. You can do it on windows, but it's a little harder. I've tried on windows a long time ago, and I couldn't even run the script/server command properly. That might have changed, but I think the whole filesystem, process management, and bash are better suited.

The best place to deploy, by far, is http://heroku.com/, they do a great job, the only thing is you need to work with git, however their guides are very well-done.
