Hal Fulton Interview

I just posted an interview with Hal F., author of The Ruby Way, and
the
upcoming The Ruby Way 2nd Edition. Hal’s a great writer, and a longtime
ruby Hacker. The interview is at:

Not to nitpick, but…

"Besides Ruby, his life consists of reading, writing, movies, plays, and
concerts. a member of Austin Scriptworks and had my first play produced
early in 2006. "

Did he produce your play, or his?

I’m new to Ruby, but I was just looking at rubyclr the other day and
amazed at how easily it lets you use .NET libraries. I think it’s neat
someone important/influential also thinks that’s worthwhile.

Great interview! Now I’m interested in his book and I’ll have to search
it out.

His … sloppy copy-editing on my part, sorry.

Thanks, and do look for his book. The first edition was great, and I’m
really looking forward to the second.

I’ve never read the first (and, in fact, still haven’t laid eyes on it
at all, despite the hours every month I spend in bookstores). I am
definitely looking forward to the second edition, though, and will
probably buy it as soon as I find it – with rent money, if need be.
Everything I’ve heard about it just makes me salivate.

I agree. It was out-of-date when I found it and still a dang good
book. I expect the update to put it back on top!
