[ADV] Deploying Rails Applications Beta Book Release

Hello Friends-

I’m happy to announce the beta release of my book for the Pragmatic
Programmers, Deploying Rails Applications, A Step by Step Guide. It’s
been in the works for a long time and has been rewritten multiple
times as Rails deployment changes fast. It’s an early beta book and
has a little more then half of the final content. We are aiming to
release a new chapter every 3 weeks until the book if finished.

I’d like to thank my co-authors Bruce Tate, Geoff Grosenbach and
Brian H. for helping to make it happen.

Ezra,
If we buy the .pdf version do we get the final release in .pdf? I
guess what I’m saying is that I’d like to know I’m getting the ‘whole
enchilada’ someday for the same price.
Thank you,
Kathy

Congratulations Ezra,

This has been a while in the making. It’s good to see it coming
together.

I bought the book and all the capistrano work is done assuming we are
using
capistrano 1.x. Will the final release be updated to have capistrano
2.ostuff.

Hi,

Congrats Ezra, seems a deep work after flying on the free chapter.

The toc don’t mention other web servers than NGinix or Mongrel.

Does the dark side with IIS is discuted or planned ?

Cheers,

Hi Kathy,

I’ve bought some other books from the Pragmatic Programmers. Not only
will
you receive the final PDF when it’s released, bu you’ll also receive
free
updates to the PDF for the life of the edition that you purchased. In
other
words, if you purchase the 1st edition of any of their books, you
receive
free PDF updates for that edition. However, if they then publish a 2nd
edition, you’d have to buy it, and you’d receive free updates for that
edition.

Regards,
Craig

Yes the book will be updated to cap2 in a subsequent release before
the final version.

Kathy-

Yes that is the whole point of the pragmatic beta books. If you buy
the pdf now you will get free updates as new chapters are released
and then you will get the final version as well.

Good work Ezra, looking forward to reading this.

You should sneak in a chapter on merb and write about how lightweight
and
fast it is and how easy it is to deploy cause it integrates so well with
mongrel etc etc etc :wink:

Oh, im loving merb by the way. If you didn’t guess!

Ezra,
One last question…will you discuss the advantages and techniques for
deploying on Amazon’s EC2?

Apache will also be covered and there is a windows chapter by Brian
Hogan that will be released soon.

Kathy-

Ec2 is a bit out of scope for this book I think. It is just linux
after all. I personally think ec2 works great in conjunction with
another standard host for your database and other persistent
services. Since your hard drive space on ec2 is not persistent if
your vm crashes and you had a database on there you are going to lose
all your data.

So deploying on ec2 is risky right now unless you have a super
strength sysadmin that can set up database clustering or replication
with frequent backups. So i am not going to cover ec2 in the book
this time around because I feel it’s a bit too complicated to get
right compared to a normal host that won;t lose your data if it crashes.

Cheers-
-Ezra
