[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.

Thanks Ezra. Grabbed my copy yesterday (beta and print) after seeing
the
post on your blog. Got some reading for the weekend!

Yes - great work, if the sample chapter 5 is anything to go by.

I wish you all the best!
Tony

Awesome, I’m looking forward to reading your book. It definitely fills
an important gap.

Are you considering adding a chapter on Vlad the Deployer (http://
www.rubyhitsquad.com/Vlad_the_Deployer.html)? I only came across this
yesterday and have not tested this app yet, but this sounds like a
very promising, simpler alternative to Capistrano, and I wouldn’t be
surprised if this were to take off.

Hi Ezra,

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.

Thank you very much for taking the initiative to fill this much observed
gap. It’ll be a blessing to see Rails applications prosper in
production.

The past two days I’ve taken the time to comment, suggest, and nitpick
extensively on each and every page. I hope that you will look through my
persistence at times – it comes from a good heart :slight_smile:

As a whole it’s shaping up to be great. Still I think that there
sometimes is a bit of unevenness in the chapters: some points are
dwelled on extensively (which I like) while other points, especially the
ones about system administration and why to choose which kind of tool,
seem to cut a corner here and there.

As a “neophyte Rails deployer” colleague of mine was skimming through
the book, he found the initial chapters to be a tailor fit, but hit a
wall as he encountered the Ubuntu setup. I’m on the same page with both
you and him: indeed it’s not a book about Linux system administration,
but at the same time I can imagine that the difference in level required
for the first couple of chapters can come as a bit of a surprise.

Looking forward to the upcoming chapters! Do let me know if I can
provide any further reviewing assistance.

The chapter 4 is about capistrano, what version? maybe capistrano 2?
Thank you!

Thanks for all the erata Roderick! I’m looking forward to finishing
off the rest of the book based on everyone’s feedback.

I’d be curious to hear your thoughts on Vlad the Deployer Ezra. Have
you
had a chance to look it over yet?

In the current beta book it uses cap 1.4.1. But the whole book will
be updated to use cap2 in a future release before it goes to print.
