Agile Web Dev Second Edition Arrives!

The postman brought a nice surprise from Amazon this morning, in the form of the second edition of Agile Web Development With Rails. I’ve had the book on preorder for a couple of weeks, but it’s been showing as a “won’t arrive until after Christmas” item right up until I last checked a couple of days ago.

First impressions of the book are good. It’s grown significantly since the first edition, with some notable additions to the sample application built in the second section. The book is a rewrite of the first edition rather than a cosmetic update which means that changes between the two aren’t signposted. It looks like it’ll take a bit of time leafing through to see exactly what’s changed.

You’ll also need to be running rails 1.2 to take full advantage of the shiny new stuff that’s covered. At the time of writing 1.2 isn’t yet available as a gem. There is a release candidate available though, and you can see what’s included and get installation instructions here.

It looks like I have some reading to do while I let my turkey go down this holiday season. Excellent.
