I’ve noticed, at least from my searching on Amazon (where I primarily
purchase materials) what appears to be a decline in the number of books
and reference materials on Ruby.
Years ago, I bought the Learning R. book from ORA. It was riddled
with errors, but I liked its very basic introduction. Since then, ORA
hasn’t produced much – this book hasn’t been updated, nor do they
respond to inquiries of such.
So my question is, am I the only one noticing this decline. If it’s
real, I wonder what the driving factors are. For example, decline in
usage of the language, not finding good authors (or they prefer to write
technical materials for what they feel is more marketable languages),
