TechBookReport on 'Practical Reporting with Ruby'
Author: JT Smith
There are plenty of Ruby books that explain the language or focus on Rails, so it's good to see a book that takes the time to look at how Ruby can be used to create a specific type of application. It's been said that ultimately all applications are about persisting data, which means, if you think about it, that a huge chunk of those applications revolve around producing reports. What David Berube has done is taken a look at how Ruby can be used in a range of common reporting scenarios - and that includes both Rails and non-Rails Ruby applications.
