Agile Web Development with Rails : The book

After reading the pickaxe book on Ruby, I moved on to reading the book "Agile Web Development with Rails". The book should be the first book you should read when you are gearing up for Rails and you better buy this book because you are going to read that book until all the pages are torn. Every now and then you would turn back to the book to get more information.

However, the book should be read from back to front. Yes, it first lets you jump start on creating a web application using rails. But when I went through it, I just read it like a fiction. I am not that sort of a guy who starts reading the book while having a computer next to him and starts working on the sample application. I am kind of a guy who wants to know the internal details first and then start writing the application. I don't know that's a good way to read a book or not. But that's how I am.

So I was kind of getting disappointed while going through the creation of the "Depot" application that I was not getting enough information about Rails. But when I started reading Part III (Rails Framework), that's where I found the book to be interesting and worth reading. And I can tell you this for sure, you better read every chapter in Part II more than once. Because there is so much information on each page that it would be hard to grasp everything on one read.

This is the only book that is needed for Rails!

    … Unbelievable , but I just found software which can do all hard work promoting your website on complete autopilot - building backlinks and getting your website on top of Google and other search engines 1st pages, so your site finally can get laser targeted qualified traffic, and so you can get lot more visitors for your website.

    YEP, that’s right, there’s this little known website which shows you how to get to the top 10 of Google and other search engines guaranteed.

    I used it and in just 7 days… got floods of traffic to my site...

    …Well check out the incredible results for yourself -

    I’m not trying to be rude here, but I believe when you find something that finally works you should share it…

    …so that’s what I’m doing today, sharing it with you:

    Take care - your friend Jennifer

    After getting more than 10000 visitors/day to my website I thought your website also need unstoppable flow of traffic...

    Use this BRAND NEW software and get all the traffic for your website you will ever need ...

    = = > >

    In testing phase it generated 867,981 visitors and $540,340.

    Then another $86,299.13 in 90 days to be exact. That's $958.88 a

    And all it took was 10 minutes to set up and run.

    But how does it work??

    You just configure the system, click the mouse button a few
    times, activate the software, copy and paste a few links and
    you're done!!

    Click the link BELOW as you're about to witness a software that
    could be a MAJOR turning point to your success.
