Next, they walk step-by-step through presenting one good solution, offering detailed explanations to promote deeper understanding.

Revue de presse :
Praise for The Ruby Way, Third Edition
“Sticking to its tried and tested formula of cutting right to the techniques the modern day Rubyist needs to know, the latest edition of The Ruby Way keeps its strong reputation going for the latest generation of the Ruby language.”
Editor of Ruby Weekly
“The authors’ excellent work and meticulous attention to detail continues in this latest update; this book remains an outstanding reference for the beginning Ruby programmer– as well as the seasoned developer who needs a quick refresh on Ruby. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Ruby programming.”
Praise for Previous Editions of The Ruby Way
“Among other things, this book excels at explaining metaprogramming, one of the most interesting aspects of Ruby. Many of the early ideas for Rails were inspired by the first edition, especially what is now Chapter 11. It puts you on a rollercoaster ride between ‘How could I use this?’ and ‘This is so cool!’ Once you get on that rollercoaster, there’s no turning back.”
David Heinemeier Hansson
Creator of Ruby on Rails,
Founder at Basecamp
“The appearance of the second edition of this classic book is an exciting event for Rubyists–and for lovers of superb technical writing in general. Hal Fulton brings a lively erudition and an engaging, lucid style to bear on a thorough and meticulously exact exposition of Ruby. You palpably feel the presence of a teacher who knows a tremendous amount and really wants to help you know it too.”
David Alan Black
Author of The Well-Grounded Rubyist
“This is an excellent resource for gaining insight into how and why Ruby works. Assomeone who has worked with Ruby for several years, I still found it full of new tricks and techniques. It’s accessible both as a straight read and as a reference that one can dip into and learn something new.”
Agile software pioneer
“Ruby’s a wonderful language–but sometimes you just want to get something done. Hal’s book gives you the solution and teaches a good bit about why that solution is good Ruby.”
Chief Scientist, ThoughtWorks
Author of Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture
