Publisher Comments:

Want to learn all about Ruby on Rails, the web application framework that is inspiring developers around the world?

This practical hands-on guide for first-time Ruby on Rails programmers will walk you through installing the required software on a Windows, Mac or Linux computer. And before you get coding, an entire chapter is devoted to object oriented programming in Ruby, so you'll be completely confident with the Ruby language before you begin working with Rails.

The example application that the book builds - a user-generated news web site - is built upon with each following chapter, and concepts such as sessions, cookies and basic AJAX usage are gradually introduced. Different aspects of Rails, such as ActiveRecord, migrations and automated testing are explored with each feature that is added to the application.

The book finishes with chapters on debugging, benchmarking and deployment to a live web server.

By the end of the book, you'll have built a fully-featured Web 2.0 application and deployed it to the Web. And all code is up-to-date for Rails 1.2, so you can begin coding immediately with the latest version of Rails.

Book News Annotation:

Ruby on Rails is an open source web application framework that seeks to reduce the amount and complexity of code developers need to write by locating information in a single unambiguous place and by pre- defining conventions. Writing for beginning to intermediate developers familiar with HTML and CSS but not necessarily with server-side technologies such as PHP or Perl, Lenz (head of a Ruby on Rails consultancy and application development company called "limited overload") introduces the Ruby on Rails framework and its components by taking the reader through building a clone of the story-sharing web site, digg.com. He provides coverage of integration with Ajax and Web 2.0 technologies and such advanced topics as model callbacks and join models. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Excellent book for starters. I've never ever done programming in my life, and still the book is so easy to read & understand: Examples are very realistic and interesting.

In short, planning to learn rails, go for it.
