Ruby in Practice

presents specific Ruby techniques developers can use in realworld

projects. The book offers detailed strategies for using Ruby in a large-scale

environment. Readers will find concrete examples of integration, messaging, web

development, and databases, all presented in a clear Problem/Solution format.

understanding of the Ruby language and its toolset. The first part concentrates

on issues that developers face both from within their organizations and

from their peers. The second part discusses techniques for communication and

integration of systems. The last part shows how to manage data and integrate

with existing data using Ruby.

Author

Jeremy McAnally

has been programming for about eight years and doing graphic

design for four years. He is currently a freelance Ruby and Rails developer, consultant,

and author. He has over three years’ experience with Ruby and two years’

with Rails; in that time he has developed a number of small, localized intranet systems

and medium- to large-scale systems in Ruby.

Assaf Arkin got bitten by the business software bug in ‘89, back when clientservers

were the thing and C was a reasonable language for writing business logic.

In ‘96 he switched to Java, and gave up client-servers for web apps. In ‘99 he

discovered the beauty of XML and the appeal of open source, and was a founding

member of XML Apache. In ‘05 he fell for Ruby’s charms and has been using it

since for development and for plugging holes that Java left behind.

High-profile Rubyists David Black, Gregory Brown, Peter Cooper, Yehuda

Katz, and Luke Melia round out the team.
