Chapter 3. Getting started

In this iteration, we’ll start making some real headway in our application. By the end of it, we’ll have a good starting point for any Flex + Rails application, and the pomodo application in particular. We’ll start by freezing Rails and then installing and running restful_authentication, and then creating and running the migration to create users. Next, we’ll switch to the Flex side and get user creation and login functional. Finally, we’ll ensure that the minimal test suite passes.

This iteration is a bit of a long, hard slog—hence the opening quote. Please rest assured that the book gets a lot more fun after this iteration is over.
