Ruby on Rails

Another great Rails book


There's another great Rails book available that is up-to-date with the new v1.2 release, Rails Cookbook from O'Reilly. I'm hoping to get it soon and will let you know what I think.

Ruby on Rails v1.2 is out, go get it


Today saw the final release of the third major production-ready release of Ruby on Rails, everyone's favorite web development suite. This new version boasts a bunch of new features and tweaks, with lots of small little touches that make your fingers sing - the official v1.2 announcement lists many of the bigger improvements but you really should do yourself a favor and pick up the Agile Web Development with Rails (2nd edition) book for a thorough explanation. As I work through it (on my Super Secret Project) I'll mention a few bits 'n pieces that I think are worth highlighting, the things that make you enjoy life and being a web developer :)

Agile Web Development 2nd edition out now


The second edition of Agile Web Development with Rails is now available in its dead-tree version. Mine arrived yesterday, when will yours?

I've actually been reading this over the last few months via the in-development PDFs (through their early release program) and it is definitely a great book. The page count has gone up with this issue as both additional topics are added and existing ones have been fleshed out. Written to match Ruby on Rails v1.2, which isn't even out yet, there are quite a number of new features to explain and, from what I've seen so far, it is once again easy to follow. I guess my number of active books has just gone up again, its probably back to six at this point X-)
