You’ve read the tutorials and watched the online videos. You have a strong grasp of all of the ingredients that make up a successful Rails application. But ingredients don’t just turn themselves into a meal. Chad Fowler’s Rails Recipes is a collection of recipes that will take you step by step through the the most cutting edge Rails techniques, mixing the ingredients to create world-class web applications. Learn how to do it, and how to do it right.
(Note: this book was written for Rails 1.x. Most of the recipes are still appropriate for Rails 2, perhaps with some tweaking. Rails Recipes: Rails 3 Edition is a newer book, written for Rails 3.1.)
