Rails Deep Dive

Rails Deep Dive

“Rails Deep Dive” is a free eBook from SitePoint. This book started life simply, as a series of blog posts on Rubysource.com. This book will guide you in creating a Rails application. It will focus on setting your system up properly and will fly a little lower than the typical 50,000 foot level of many tutorials.


While Rails is often touted as a good web development framework for beginners, there are rumblings in the community that Rails has outgrown that moniker;3 the changes in Rails 3.1 are a result of a more mature community being in need of an advanced web framework. We’re going to focus on Rails 3.1 (RC4 at the time of writing), highlighting some of the changes at 3.1 as we go.
