Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ruby on Rails continues to build up a tremendous head of steam. Fueled by significant benefits and an impressive portfolio of real-world applications already in production, Rails is destined to continue making significant inroads in coming years.

Each new Rails application showing up on the web adds yet more to the collective wisdom of the Rails development community. Yesterday's best practices yield to today's latest and greatest techniques, as the state of the art is continually refined in kitchens all across the Internet. Indeed, these are times of great progress.

At the same time, it's easy to get left behind in the wake of progress. Advanced Rails Recipes keeps you on the cutting edge of Rails development and, more importantly, continues to turn this fast-paced framework to your advantage.

Advanced Rails Recipes is filled with pragmatic recipes you'll use on every Rails project. And by taking the code in these recipes and slipping it into your application you'll not only deliver your application quicker, you'll do so with the confidence that it's done right.

The book includes contributions from Aaron Batalion, Adam Keys, Adam Wiggins, Andre Lewis, Andrew Kappen, Benjamin Curtis, Ben Smith, Chris Bernard, Chris Haupt, Chris Wanstrath, Cody Fauser, Dan Benjamin, Dan Manges, Daniel Fischer, David Bock, David Chelimsky, David Heinemeier Hansson, Erik Hatcher, Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Geoffrey Grosenbach, Giles Bowkett, Greg Hansen, Gregg Pollack, Hemant Kumar, Hugh Bien, Jamie Orchard-Hays, Jamis Buck, Jared Haworth, Jarkko Laine, Jason LaPier, Jay Fields, John Dewey, Jonathan Dahl, Josep Blanquer, Josh Stephenson, Josh Susser, Kevin Clark, Luke Francl, Mark Bates, Marty Haught, Matthew Bass, Michael Slater, Mike Clark, Mike Hagedorn, Mike Mangino, Mike Naberezny, Mike Subelsky, Nathaniel Talbott, PJ Hyett, Patrick Reagan, Peter Marklund, Pierre-Alexandre Meyer, Rick Olson, Ryan Bates, Scott Barron, Tony Primerano, Val Aleksenko, and Warren Konkel.

Book News Annotation:

Using the Rails web application framework to employ the Ruby programming language can be difficult for even experienced users, and this guide is designed to help programmers discover solutions for faster searching, seamless integration and smoother deployment. Clark, working directly for the Rails Community, uses a "recipe" format so that users can skip the theory behind each function and merely write the correct code and therefore save plenty of time. Much of the guide focuses on RESTful interfaces, considering that most of the Rails architecture now leans toward the REST approach. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

From the author of the indispensable Rails Recipes, and with the help of a new master Rails chef in the kitchen, here are 72 new ways to kick your Ruby on Rails apps up a notch. More Rails Recipes is a collection of practical recipes for dressing up your web application with little fuss. You'll learn how the pros have solved the tough problems using the most cutting-edge Rails techniques so you can deliver your stunning web app quicker and easier.

Developers by the thousands are coming to Rails-the benefits are clear, both to individuals and their organizations.

But how can a developer be expected to write idiomatic, effective Rails code when the technology is so new? The answer is to work alongside masters, people who've been there from the start (and who have the scars to prove it). And, what better way to learn from their experience than to look at their code and read their explanations of why it's written that way? And even better imagine if that code can be lifted and placed right into your own application.

This is better than just cut-and-paste: the recipe format means you'll understand the code, and be able to modify it to suit your needs. And the list of recipes is so broad that you're bound to find tips and techniques where you'll say Oh That's how they do that, or, I didn't know you could do that in Rails.

With More Rails Recipes, a following up to the popular original Rails Recipes, you can cook up a storm.
