“Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby” (aka POODR) by Sandi Metz.

“Objects on Rails” by Avdi G…

“Design Pattern in Ruby” by Russ Olsen.

“Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests” by Steve Freeman
and Nat Pryce.

Lastly, I haven’t heard much detail about it, but I like the concept,
so I’ll add “Clean Ruby” by Jim G…

One great benefit of these over the dusty classics is that you may
well bump into many of these authors at conferences and such. I
haven’t met Freeman and Pryce, but the rest are very approachable if
you have any questions or comments.

What about “Rails AntiPatterns” and “Clean Code”?

@Dave A.

Could you also suggest some good books that might benefited you,on meta
programming in Ruby?

Thanks

Kent Beck’s “Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns” is great for Ruby
design & arch: http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?SmalltalkBestPracticePatterns

Service-Oriented Design With Ruby on Rails by Paul Dix

I don’t know if there’s a new version from it, but it opened my mind
when
thinking about web apps architecture.

Can any one help me by saying the Good books on Ruby 1.9.3 and Ruby
meta-programming? - Books would be good having lot’s of examples.

I have the one below with me:

programming_ruby_1.9_3rd_edition

Thanks

I’m currently reading the following on metaprogramming:
http://pragprog.com/book/ppmetr/metaprogramming-ruby

Seems to be very good.

Haven’t read any on that, I just picked it up from pieces of other
books, blog posts, RUG/conference talks, web tutorials (which is
actually where I learn most things), etc.

The first two chapters of Structure and Interpretation of Computer
Programs (it’s free):

http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book.html

Anyway, in the book The Ruby P.ming Language, there’s a section
about
“Functional Programming” in chapter 6, “Methods, Procs, Lambdas and
Closures”.
