Programming Ruby : the pragmatic programmers' guide by David Thomas( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruby is an increasingly popular, fully object-oriented dynamic programming language, hailed by many practitioners as the finest and most useful language available today. When Ruby first burst onto the scene in the Western world, the Pragmatic Programmers were there with the definitive reference manual, Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide. Now in its second edition, author Dave Thomas has expanded the famous Pickaxe book with over 200 pages of new content, covering all the improved language features of Ruby 1.8 and standard library modules. The Pickaxe contains four major sections: An acclaimed tutorial on using Ruby; The definitive reference to the language; Complete documentation on all built-in classes, modules, and methods; Complete descriptions of all 98 standard libraries. If you enjoyed the First Edition, you'll appreciate the expanded content, including enhanced coverage of installation, packaging, documenting Ruby source code, threading and synchronization, and enhancing Ruby's capabilities using C-language extensions. Programming for the World Wide Web is easy in Ruby, with new chapters on XML/RPC, SOAP, distributed Ruby, templating systems, and other web services. There's even a new chapter on unit testing. This is the definitive reference manual for Ruby, including a description of all the standard library modules, a complete reference to all built-in classes and modules (including more than 250 significant changes since the First Edition). Coverage of other features has grown tremendously, including details on how to harness the sophisticated capabilities of irb, so you can dynamically examine and experiment with your running code

Programming Ruby 1.9 & 2.0 : the pragmatic programmers' guide by David Thomas( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruby 1.9 was a major release of the language: it introduced multinationalization, new block syntax and scoping rules, a new, faster, virtual machine, and hundreds of new methods in dozens of new classes and modules. Ruby 2.0 is less radical--it has keyword arguments, a new regexp engine, and some library changes. This book describes it all. The first quarter of the book is a tutorial introduction that gets you up to speed with the Ruby language and the most important classes and libraries. Download and play with the hundreds of code samples as your experiment with the language. The second section looks at real-world Ruby, covering the Ruby environment, how to package, document, and distribute code, and how to work with encodings. The third part of the book is more advanced. In it, you'll find a full description of the language, an explanation of duck typing, and a detailed description of the Ruby object model and metaprogramming. The book ends with a reference section: comprehensive and detailed documentation of Ruby's libraries. You'll find descriptions and examples of more than 1,300 methods in 58 built-in classes and modules, along with brief descriptions of 97 standard libraries. Ruby makes your programming more productive; it makes coding fun again. And this book will get you up to speed with the very latest Ruby, quickly and enjoyably

Advanced Rails recipes by Mike Clark( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
