Coming from a non-programming background, I found that the instructions were very clear and detailed and could get me started writing and building simple apps in no time. The author makes Ruby and Rails very approachable, which is awesome considering the framework's complexity. I really appreciated the preliminary chapter about the Ruby language, and thoroughly enjoyed the ActiveRecord, Action Mailer and Server settings ones. They were detailed and well written; I just regret that there were not more exercises modules As a conclusion, I would say that even if this book will not transform you into a professional Ruby on Rails developer, it will surely make you want to take things further and kickstart a successful career.

In this regard, I do hope the author is planning to write a more advanced guide in the future! Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Decent overview for starters. Each chapter or complex topic starts with a new mini rails app that allows you to play around with the feature the book is trying to teach you about.

Do not think this would be useful for experienced Rails developers. One person found this helpful. Translate review to English. My first book on Rails. I had a bad impact with this book especially for the poor printing quality. In my opinion the characters size is too small, at the edge of readability, and I spot a lot of English syntax errors although I'm not an English speaker.

Coming to the content of the book, it is a quick guide to start developing with Rails, a lot of pages are copy and paste of output command' s help which the only goal seems to be just reaching a minimum book size instead of covering more interesting matters.

I think other books could provide more useful content. Not recommended. I've been using Ruby for over 5 years, and have been developing software for over 15 years I have not jumped the Rails bandwagon but it keeps drawing my attention This guide starts from 0 and gets you up and running with Ruby and Rails.

Using this guide is like having an experienced Rails developer sit down with you and give a guided tour of developing Rails applications. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is there are some typos and other glitches, but nothing that interferes with the content.

Load more international reviews. Dieses Buch vermittelt einen tollen rundum Einstieg in die Materie. Klare Empfehlung! Um praktische Erfahrung mit rails zu sammeln finde ich Michael Hartls railstutorial allerdings besser. If you are a beginer as me, if you hope to understand the workings of rails, this book is a waste of time. I'm glad I ordered an other book and I'm looking forward to receive it, hoping it could be more instructive.

I regret having bought this one J'ai appris Rails avec ce bouquin. L'auteur revient sur les fondamentaux de Ruby avant d'entrer dans le vif du sujet de RoR. Der Autor beschreibt die Rails 4. Das Buch ist sicher empgehlenswert fuer Einsteiger in die Rails Welt. Alle Beispiele sind nachvollziehbar. Ansonsten ein guter, leicht verdaulicher Einstieg. Really nice book to dive into Rails. As always well wirtten and makes fun to read it.

Please Go on. The issue is that this printed version is not good. It's in tiny print, though mostly readable with reading glasses, but there are little sections called "Warning" in various places that were obviously designed for color but are in a very dark gray, making the text in there virtually if not actually unreadable.

These warning sections normally include a "See " for the details but there is NOTHING that shows in any of the parenthesis as the dark gray background masks it completely out.

You can barely make out the dark text in these little sections. Others marked "Important" are slightly better but still almost unreadable. Being a bit older, I find this really untenable. They are actually important and it's very disappointing not to see anything in there.

I would not have bought this book if I could have picked it up and looked inside it to see the printing treatment before purchasing it. I do not know if the Kindle version is better, but it can not be worse. If I were the author, I'd find a new publishing company before they trash another effort. The content, that I can make out, is not bad but it's a challenge to keep reading it. Having bought the book, I intend to get some value from it. The content is certainly usable, and not everyone will have the same issues with the printing that I did, I hope.

Update: Changed to a four from a three. Frankly I don't like reviewing anything that doesn't earn a five anyhow. It doesn't seem fair to penalize the author for issues with the printing, and the content is quite helpful.

The "warning" panels are very few in number, and the printer has hopes of improving the next version I'm sure. He's a master of Ruby and Rails, and the subjects are covered quickly but quite comprehensively. I used this book as a returning coder coming back to Rails after more than half a decade dealing with much less elegant languages that shall remain nameless. But, enough about him and me. The why: This is the first and currently only book out on Rails 4. It's plenty good enough even for a neophyte with little programming experience.

Lots of workable examples. I learned a lot more about Ruby and Rails even than I'd forgotten. It's well laid out and deals with a number of topics such as internationalization and site caching in much better ways than I've seen in any other Rails book. The author also gives a short but potent example of production deployment using Unicorn and nginx, again a rarity in any form. Is this the only Rails 4 book you'll need or want?

Probably not, if you're a production coder, but you can probably keep going with Rails 4 until Obie Fernendez comes out with his latest take on The Rails Way. I was quite satisfied with this book.
