possible, making this book to be preserved for a longer time.




You missed to mention another book by Ivan Porto C. .

He writes for Manning Publishers and few write-ups by him are expected
anytime on Manning WebSite.

Keep an eye there like me.

Ivan regularly helps us with the questions posted here.

His Book definitely deserves attention.



Its nice to see interesting comments flowing at authors blog.

out of 15 comments, majority seems to be asking for Active Record and
LINQ support with IronRuby.

The Authors are enthusiastic and are open for suggestions.

I suggest you all to place your comments there, helping the book to
shape well.


Thank you and I thank those that have commented on my blog. We are
definitely looking for suggestions, that’s the main reason for the
introductory post.

The comments have been great and we have already made changes to some of
chapters and their content.
