Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You've heard about this amazing web framework called Ruby on Rails that's taken the world by storm but thought it was way too complex for you? Think again.

Foundation Rails 2 takes you through your first steps in Rails, explaining in plain English how to start building dynamic web applications. And there's never been a better time to jump in to the Rails world, as the release of Rails 2 is a major evolutionary leap forward from previous versions.

Unlike other Rails books, this book doesn't throw you into the deep end right away in the hopes that you'll learn to swim. Instead, we'll start out with the basics and continually expand your knowledge until, by the end of the book, we're building a Rails application with dynamic features such as user registration, geocoding, filtering results with AJAX, RSS feeds, and an XML interface. Meanwhile, we'll talk about the important issues that other books often leave out such as testing your application's code, securing your application from hackers, optimizing your code for the best performance, and of course, deploying your application.

This book takes a focused approach to guiding you through understanding how the pieces of Rails work individually and how they fit together. Instead of emphasizing boring theoretical discussions, Foundation Rails 2 lets you get your hands dirty with the framework and learn the hows and whys of Rails faster than ever.

We start with a tour of what makes Rails special and why you need to learn it, move into a gentle introduction to the high points of programming in Ruby, and then take a tour of a sample Rails application. Next, we dig deeper into the core components of Rails before building a complete Rails application together. By the end of this book, not only will you know how to build Rails applications but you'll understand the reasons behind what you do. In this book, you'll learn The foundations of the Ruby programming language The most important Rails philosophies and conventions that speed up web development How to make working with databases easy and fun using ActiveRecord Automated testing with RSpec to ensure your applications are rock solid How to build a complete Rails application with special discussions on security, performance, and deployment Summary of Contents Chapter 1 Why Rails Chapter 2 A Short Introduction to Ruby Chapter 3 Touring a Rails Application Chapter 4 Introducing ActiveRecord Chapter 5 Advanced ActiveRecord Chapter 6 Presenting the Views Chapter 7 Exploring Action Pack: Understanding the Controller Chapter 8 Controlling Our Routing Chapter 9 Scaffolding and Plug-ins Chapter 10 Introduction to Testing with RSpec Chapter 11 Building a Complete Application Chapter 12 Enhancing Our Application Chapter 13 Security and Performance Enhancements Chapter 14 Deploying Your Rails Application Appendix A Where to Go from Here Appendix B Rails Installation Appendix C Database Design 101

Synopsis:

This guide explains in plain English how to get started in Rails and how to build applications. It covers the link with Ruby and why developers need to be familiar with it; the Model, View, Controller pattern, working with databases; and writing, running, testing and deploying Rails applications.

Synopsis:

Rails is a phenomenally popular framework for building web applications. This book is specifically written for the latest release of Rails (Rails 2 released December 2007). It covers the fundamentals of Rails programming from the ground up in the successful Foundation style. It is written in a friendly and approachable manner for web developers rather than being a dry programming book.
