I have a very long queue of technical reading and i blame all those talented people who write more and more great books.
- Object oriented techniques is always a hot topic among ruby – rails developers and based on reviews the book got it is a must read. You can see a talk from the author here
I always want to know how my tools work under the hood and Ruby under microscope looks like a great book for Ruby internals. If you don’t want to read the book you should definitely read the blog posts where the book started to shape.
This year I want to learn more about functional programming (Clojure, Haskell) and this book seems to be a good introduction to functional programing at least for someone who spends most his time with object oriented languages. The author has also written two Ruby books (Everyday Scripting with Ruby and Programming Cocoa with Ruby) and he is the developer of the the popular Midje testing library for Clojure.
Now if i find some time to read..
