Professional Ruby Series Rough Cuts Available
My series has three exciting titles coming in 2010 that I wanted to share with you, since they're now available in preview form.
The Rough Cuts service from Safari Books Online gives you exclusive access to an evolving manuscript that you can read online or download as a PDF and print. A Rough Cuts book is not fully edited or completely formatted, but you'll get access to new versions as they are created.
Design with Ruby and Rails
This book covers the tools and techniques for building service architectures in Ruby that are designed to scale and operate in the cloud or with legacy enterprise systems.
In Rails AntiPatterns, the authors provide many real world antipatterns examples along with practical advice for how to avoid them in the first place. Each AntiPattern is demonstrated with real world code, and solutions for refactoring are presented that are based on sound Object Oriented principles and established Ruby on Rails best practices.
and Dimensional Modeling with Ruby
Both a reference and tutorial, this book shows how to implement the reporting and dimensional modeling concepts using a variety of tools in Ruby.
