Plugins should not lined with the exception of acts_as_attachment, that is now deprecated in want of attachment_fu.
The merely factor I had with the ebook was once with the sections on trying out. The authors hide unit and useful trying out with the integrated Rails checking out framework. regrettably, the instance checks are terrible and shouldn't look in construction caliber code. The sections on checking out should still simply be used to appreciate how the integrated trying out framework works in Rails and never for instance for writing exams. it really is too undesirable that the authors didnt conceal integration checking out either.
A great thing that did pop out of the trying out sections during this e-book is the encouragement for builders to jot down checks which reveal insects sooner than solving them. Its the single solution to make sure you particularly fastened it.

The authors make the effort to stroll the reader via constructing and utilizing Subversion as a vital part of Rails software program improvement. it's also developing and utilizing Apache and Mongrel to serve Rails. because the e-book strikes from improvement to construction deployment the consumer is proven the way to installation instantly from Subversion to their construction server utilizing Capistrano.
There have been a number of minor typos and one redundant sentence on web page fifty two. this is often significantly below different technical books that i have read.
The basically titanic pink sections marked in my replica are those on trying out. Take these examples with a grain of salt.
Overall, nearly all of the ebook is full of reliable suggestion for beginner Rails builders like, don't wait until eventually your program is outfitted ahead of you create and try out the construction atmosphere and contain the tip clients during the process.
If you're a beginner Rails developer who comprehend bits and items of Rails this publication does a very good activity of connecting the opposite dots as the authors make the effort to move during the complete strategy of improvement to creation. however when you've got a great clutch commonly Rails improvement procedure you could bypass this booklet.

Database Fundamentals Clarification of Database-Related Terms Now that you understand what a database is, I must clarify some important database terms for you. In the SQL world (you will learn about SQL in depth in Chapter 6, “Introducing SQL”), this collection of data is called a table. The individual records in a table are called rows, and the fields that make up the rows are called columns. A collection of tables is called a database. Picture a filing cabinet. The cabinet houses drawers, each of which contains groups of data.
Tip One point worth mentioning here is that the “never duplicate data” rule does not apply to backups of your data. Backing up data is incredibly important, and you can never have too many backup plans. The rule of never duplicating data applies only to live data—data to be used in a production environment on an ongoing basis. And while you are thinking about it, you realize that even your earlier solution for including director names is dangerous. After all, what if a movie has two directors? You’ve allocated room for only one name.
