If you are anywhere near ruby coding, you need this by your side...,
This review is from: Ruby Cookbook (Cookbooks (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Having gone through several O'reilly cookbooks, I just went to the store and picked this book even before reading a single review. If you're into hands-on coding, the cookbook series takes you direct into a pool of codes to swim in - you're gonna love it! Each page has valuable code snippets that can help you through your everyday coding tasks. This book is a must have for any Ruby programmer, right next to his desk.
The recipes or code examples are written in a very intelligent manner, not only to learn, but also to appreciate Ruby as a language.
Most of the people I have met who are into Ruby, they come from a Perl, C, Python, Java or other programming background. So this book perfectly addresses those folks. If you're new to programming, I would suggest you pick some other book.
