TechBookReport on 'Ruby For Rails'
TBR writes "Billed by some as a possible Java-killer, the huge amount of interest in the Ruby programming language is in no small part due to the popularity of the Ruby On Rails framework. An application framework that implements the Model View Controller architecture, Ruby On Rails enables the creation of data-driven web applications with minimal configuration and infrastructure coding. It's advocates point out that developers using Rails can concentrate on the application logic and forget about the plumbing. It's also possible, in theory at least, for developers to use Rails without knowing much in the way of Ruby. However, those wanting to understand how Rails works, and who want to get the most out of it, can turn to 'Ruby For Rails', a tutorial designed precisely for Rails developers wanting to learn Ruby."
