The Second Edition of the Jolt Award-winning book shows you a new approach to web development:

  • develop sophisticated web applications quickly and easily;
  • use incremental and iterative development to create the web apps that users want; and
  • get to go home on time.

This is a substantial overhaul to the First Edition. In this book you’ll find information on migrations, RJS templates, respond_to, integration tests, and all the new ActiveRecord features (including polymorphic associations, join models, and eager loading). And it incorporates another year’s worth of Rails best practices.
