How do you write truly elegant code with Ruby? Ruby Best Practices is for programmers who want to use Ruby as experienced Rubyists do. Written by the developer of the Ruby project Prawn, this concise book explains how to design beautiful APIs and domain-specific languages with Ruby, as well as how to work with functional programming ideas and techniques that can simplify your code and make you more productive.

Beware of O'Reily books!!

I didn't realize I would be BETA testing this app. The book constantly hangs and becomes unresponsive.

The code samples run off the page and there's no way to scroll left or right to see them. It's a PROGRAMMING book, so it's kinda important to be able to see the entire code samples!

Buyers, consider yourself warned...

0/5 stars


The code samples run to the edge of the page and then are cut off. It is obvious that parts of them missing. Since this is a programming book, this is a real problem.
