[ADV] New Agile Web Development with Rails Beta

Folks:

I’ve uploaded the B1.14 version of AWDwR.

The only major change here is a revamp of the Action Mailer chapter,
and the
removal of the Web Services chapter.

I’m still in two minds about the latter: it’s a great chapter, but
the core team
seem to be deemphasizing Action Web Service, and the book is already
longer than
I’d like. My plan is to put the existing Web Services chapter up for
free at
some point so you can still get to the content.

Again, I need to stress that the book is written on the assumption
that the reader has
Rails 1.2 installed. As that doesn’t yet exist, you HAVE TO HAVE EDGE
RAILS
for some of this stuff to work. Some folks like the following
description
of working with Edge:


edge-rails/

As usual, the update is available for free from

http://books.pragprog.com/titles/rails2/reorder

Enter just two of the three pieces of information to identify your PDF.
I recommend using your order number and your email address, as these
tend
to be be the most consistent.

Thanks for your support for this project. Keep the comments
coming in.

Cheers

Dave T.

Thanx for the update Dave.

This has to be one of the most useful books I’ve ever bought. I think
it’s
so much more useful because of these updates. I can use the book early
and
get up to date information when I need it.

My Rails experience wouln’t have been very nice if I’d had to wait until
the
book was completely finished and released.

Keep up the good work.

Wow! Thank you for that. That’s the intent behind the beta books: get
stuff out there, and adapt it as people make comments. It’s really
nice to hear that it’s working for you.

Cheers

I will double Daniel’s words - same was with me.

I started to work with RoR just four months ago and got that level where
I am now just because of your book
plus because of reading of the RoR source code itself.

All the Best!
Sergey.

Yes, let me chime in here too!
For me, your book has become the calm in the eye of the Rails storm.
(I also want to add my kudos for Pramatic Programmers - From Journeyman
to
Master), and the whole Pragmatic Bookshelf. I don’t know who first came
up
with the idea of Beta Books, but the Bookself is an example of art
meeting
life.

Best regards,
Dave Dumaresq
