Just bought a MacBookPro11,4
So I'm following along with the videos on how to set up a Ruby Development Environment on my new Mac and nothing is going right. I'm guessing the videos are outdated? Can someone walk me through the process so I can keep learning? Thanks in advance.

Installing a new dev environment is always a bit frustrating. I have had a lot of luck with RVM. Once you have RVM installed, you can do a
rvm list known
which will show you which ruby versions are available. Then you can do something like:
rvm use 2.1
Then you should get output from
If so, from there you can just
gem install rails
and head off. however, I've never done an install that was frustration-free, even with RVM. I would plan to get some errors and end up googling. If you're in a pinch, there is the treehouseVM, which they have a video for how to get up and running with Vagrant.
