Happy to look over what you've got: firstname.lastname@example.org :)
It depends on who you're trying to get money from. Tech investors would rather see a working prototype over a 10 page business plan, but say you're trying to loan money from a bank, they would prefer a large business plan.
Personally, I can think you can get away with a one or two page business plan which details what the aim of the business is, what you're going to do with the money you're trying to raise and what aims you have. As you're a UI Engineer, I would suggest spending more time either designing or mocking up a clickable version (without back-end) to show potential investors - it's more visual and powerful for them to see.

Yeh, that's just the front-end and design of the site, nothing to do with Rails or any of the functionality of Airbnb :)
Try looking into Sinatra: http://www.sinatrarb.com/
Personally I don't mind the "bloat" of Rails. If I want to make anything more fully featured, all the tools I need are there ready for me to get going - no need to write everything from scratch. Plus if I ever take over someone else's code, I know exactly where everything is.
For 10.9, all you need to do is open Terminal and type in either:
gem update rails
gem install rails
Hopefully that should do something!
I don't unfortunately, the material is owned by my old company, sorry!
You can achieve a lot with Rails in a very short amount of time. I used to teach how to make a basic version of Airbnb to beginners in two days - that would include payments, geo-location, user registration and more. Once you understand the principles behind how it works, there's a lot you can achieve.
Hi everyone, I wrote this tutorial. Any questions about it and I'll be around to answer them today :)
