Praise for Michael Hartl’s Books and Videos on Ruby on Rails
“My former company (CD Baby) was one of the first to loudly switch to Ruby on Rails, and then even more loudly switch back to PHP. (Google me to read about the drama.) This book by Michael Hartl came so highly recommended that I had to try it, and the Ruby on Rails(TM) Tutorial is what I used to switch back to Rails again.”
–From the Foreword by Derek Sivers (sivers.org)
Formerly: founder of CD Baby
Currently: founder of Thoughts Ltd.
“Michael Hartl’s Rails Tutorial book is the #1 (and only, in my opinion) place to start when it comes to books about learning Rails. . . . It’s an amazing piece of work and, unusually, walks you through building a Rails app from start to finish with testing. If you want to read just one book and feel like a Rails master by the end of it, pick the Ruby on Rails(TM) Tutorial.”
–Peter Cooper, editor, Ruby Inside
“For the self-motivated reader who responds well to the ‘learn by doing’ method and is prepared to put in the effort, this comes highly recommended.”
–Ian Elliot, reviewer, I Programmer
“Ruby on Rails(TM) Tutorial is a lot of work, but if you’re careful and patient, you’ll learn a lot.”
–Jason Shen, tech entrepreneur, blogger at The Art of Ass-Kicking
–Mattan Griffel, co-founder & CEO of One Month
“Although I’m a Python/Django developer by trade, I can’t stress enough how much this book has helped me. As an undergraduate, completely detached from industry, this book showed me how to use version control, how to write tests, and, most importantly–despite the steep learning curve for setting up and getting stuff running–how the end result of perseverance is extremely gratifying. It made me fall in love with technology all over again. This is the book I direct all my friends to who want to start learning programming/building stuff. Thank you Michael!”
–Prakhar Srivastav, software engineer, Xcite.com, Kuwait
“It doesn’t matter what you think you will be developing with in the future or what the framework du jour is; if you want to learn how to build something, there is no better place to start than with this tutorial. And for all the ‘non-technical’ people out there who want to see their ideas come to life, who are considering hiring contractors, paying for a class, or ‘founder dating’ in the search for a technical co-founder: stop. Take a step back. Forget about your idea for a short while and immerse yourself in this tutorial to learn what it takes to put something together. You and your software-related projects will be better for it.”
–Vincent C., entrepreneur and developer
“It has to be the best-written book of its type I’ve ever seen, and I can’t recommend it enough.”
–Daniel Hollands, administrator of Birmingham.IO
“For those wanting to learn Ruby on Rails, Hartl’s Ruby on Rails(TM) Tutorial is (in my opinion) the best way to do it.”
–David Young, software developer and author at deepinthecode.com
“This is a great tutorial for a lot of reasons, because aside from just teaching Rails, Hartl is also teaching good development practices.”
–Michael Denomy, full-stack web developer
“Without a doubt, the best way I learned Ruby on Rails was by building an actual working app. I used Michael Hartl’s Ruby on Rails(TM) Tutorial, which showed me how to get a very basic Twitter-like app up and running from scratch. I cannot recommend this tutorial enough; getting something up and going fast was key; it beats memorization by a mile.”
–James Fend, serial entrepreneur, JamesFend.com
“The book gives you the theory and practice, while the videos focus on showing you in person how it’s done. Highly recommended combo.”
–Antonio Cangiano, software engineer, IBM
“The author is clearly an expert at the Ruby language and the Rails framework, but more than that, he is a working software engineer who introduces best practices throughout the text.”
–Greg Charles, senior software developer, Fairway Technologies
“Overall, [Hartl’s] video tutorials should be a great resource for anyone new to Rails.”
–Michael Morin, ruby.about.com
“Hands-down, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to get into Ruby on Rails development.”
–Michael Crump, Microsoft MVP

Every chapter we start on a new git hub branch, and rather than post that branch for reference to git hub, one is FORCED to type reams of small print code into ones editor. This causes the reader to spend far to long chasing typo bugs instead of learning the excellent material. Copying printout into the computer is so 1980s it hurts. Imaging if you could go to the latest branch and check your work against that. Some might say well do it against the final version, but when your on chapter 5 the final version is so far ahead of where your at it makes tracking down the differences and how they map to the chapter you are on as complex and error prone as typing from the book.
I'll be returning this, shame as the book has great information and teaching
The use of "technical sophistication" as a pedagogical method is praiseworthy. It allows one to develop important skills, techniques, and understanding of the material along the way. And, after all, this is what one needs from a tutorial, right. Highly recommended.
I've been in the IT industry for about 10 years but I have been avoiding programming for quite some time. I've heard about Michael's book from following Derek Sivers and it doesn't disappoint.
The material builds up your skill set in a very methodical way. I have learned so much and I'm only half-way through the material.
The material in this book has given me the confidence, that with hard work and great reference materials, I can definitely become an engaged and proficient programmer in Ruby.

This was meant to be from "From Zero to Deploy". This goes on all through the book. I understand that bugs happen but that is why we have humans.
One can guess past the errors but this is just inexcusable.
Learning languages and learning web development are two different things and the latter is done through this book very well. I recommend both for anyone looking to learn software development. Especially if you want to become a fullstack developer.

This book can also be used as a useful introduction to software engineering in general. Learning the principles behind this book will give the reader tools of technical sophistication meaning that solutions will be found to perceived insurmountable problems.
Su objetivo es enseñarte programación a nivel profesional. Lo que significa que no solo te enseña a programar, sino también utilizar herramientas de desarrollo de nivel profesional. Aprendes a utilizar:
- la línea de comandos unix,
- un entorno de desarrollo integrado (IDE),
- control de versiones (git),
- mantener un repositorio remoto,
- subir regularmente código al servidor de producción (online).
Es un TUTORIAL lo que significa que hay que ir trabajando con el ordenador para poder seguir el aprendizaje.
Empiezas desde cero y al acabar habrás hecho y puesto online un clon de twitter. Lo que es bastante alucinante. Aunque no es de extrañar dadas sus 750 páginas de explicaciones, intrucciones precisas y código.
Yo le dediqué varios meses de (mucho) trabajo y no podría estar más contento con lo aprendido.
Si lo vas a seguir para aprender desarrollo web, ten en cuenta que requerirá tiempo pero al final tendrás tu recompensa.
O livro está baseado em desenvolver uma aplicação com autenticação e listagem de microposts utilizando bancos relacionais.
O ponto fraco é que não aborda a integração com banco não relacionais, tais como o MongoDB e Cassandra, nem a autenticação via JWT (JSON Web Token), mas as bases criadas com o estudo desta obra facilitam em muito a compreensão e aplicação de tais integrações com o Rails.
contiene imagines y ejemplos.
En effet il nous est proposé dès le début de prendre de bonnes habitudes en utilisant Git et Bitbucket ainsi qu'Heroku.
Je le recommande à tous ceux qui veulent apprendre RoR et la programmation Web.
Je précise que ce livre est an anglais.
