I guess most readers of this blog are iOS developers but I wanted to pass on this piece of news for those of you who also have some interest in Ruby on Rails. The Rails community annual get together, RailsConf, is taking place this week and in honour of that one of my favourite publishers, Pragmatic Programmers, is offering a 40% discount on all Rails and Ruby related books.
As well as the definitive books on Rails and Ruby there are also some good books on testing which may also be of some interest to iOS developers (no affiliate links just my humble opinion). The ones that I would recommend taking a look at are as follows (full list):
- Agile Web Development with Rails (4th edition)
- The RSpec Book: Behaviour-Driven Development with RSpec, Cucumber, and Friends.
- Programming Ruby 1.9 (3rd edition): The Pragmatic Programmers’ Guide
The discount ends on Friday (20th May). Hope it saves somebody some money.
