Sitepoint.com is offering its 439-page book, “Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Web Applications,” for free as a downloadable PDF on its Web site. I got mine, and it’s fantastic (especially at the low price of $0)! Check it out here.
Ruby on Rails, or RoR for short, is a programming language and framework for web applications that specializes in working with databases and is all the rage nowadays. See these Orlando-based misfits and their RoR commercials.
The free PDF version of the book, which sells for $26.37 on Amazon, will only be available on Sitepoint.com for 60 more days.
And, if you’re looking for a different Rails book, most of the Rubyheads here in Orlando highly recommend “Agile Web Development with Rails.”
