Ruby Web Dev: The Other Way

Ruby Web Dev: The Other Way

By Ievgen Kuzminov
Book Description

This guide is born after a question “Could you write a list of all the things, that a good Ruby on Rails developer should know?”. I decided to expand it to the whole of Ruby web development and related “Full Stack” skills (but also limit it to “Web”, as it is not about Ruby in general).

It is inspired by “PHP The Right Way” guide. The format and advises. This guide also contains sections dedicated to very important aspects of web development, explanation (if needed) and the list of tutorial links.
