Practical Rails Projects

Sam Ruby Re:Already out of date? (65 comments)

it is likely that many of the examples will no longer work as described. I know that is the case with current version Agile Web Development with Rails.
I guess that would depend on your definition of current. There is a new version in beta that has already been largely updated, and continues to actively follow Rails development.

Disclaimer: with this edition, I was recruited to be one of the authors of this book.

Sam Ruby writes "From Bob Sutor :
I think Rob Weir and I (as well as many others) have made it clear in the last few months why we think the OpenDocument Format ISO standard is vastly superior to the Open XML spec. ODF is what the world needs today to drive competition, innovation, and lower costs for customers. It is an example of a real open standard versus a vendor-dictated spec that documents proprietary products via XML. ODF is about the future, Open XML is about the past. We voted for the future.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
