An expert guide to Ruby, a popular new Object-Oriented Programming Language

Ruby is quickly becoming a favourite among developers who need a simple, straight forward, portable programming language. Ruby is ideal for quick and easy object-oriented programming such as processing text files or performing system management. Having been compared with other programming languages such as Perl, Python, PCL, Java, Eiffel, and C++; Ruby is popular because of its straight forward syntax and transparent semantics.
Using step-by-step examples and real world applications, the Ruby Developer's Guide is designed for programmers and developer's looking to embrace the object-oriented features and functionality of this robust programming language. Readers will learn how to develop, implement, organize and deploy applications using Ruby.

Ruby is currently experiencing a rapid rise in popularity in the object-oriented programming community
Readers receive up-to-the minute links, white papers, and analysis for two years at solutions@syngress.com
Comes with a wallet-sized CD containing a printable HTML version of the book, all of the source code examples and demos of popular Ruby third-party programming tools and applications

Editorial Reviews

This guide for developers describes how to create applications using the Ruby object-oriented programming language. This is not an introductory text, and it is expected that the reader has at least a basic understanding of Ruby. A sampling of topics includes using GUI toolkits; programming with Ruby's database-independent- interface; and connecting two or more applications across a network using Distributed Ruby (Drb).
