Download the PDF of “Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Applications” for Free!

Build Your Own Ruby on Rails ApplicationsSitePoint is making the PDF version of their Rails book Build Your Own Ruby on Rails Applications available for FREE for the next 60 days.

Here’s what SitePoint has to say about this giveaway:

That’s right… Not an extract… Not a sample chapter… The ENTIRE 447 pages of Patrick Lenz’s incredible book is (for the next 60 days) free to download.

From installing Ruby, Rails and MySQL, to building and deploying a fully featured web application, this book has it all. Imagine building a Web 2.0 social news application, while learning the ins-and-outs of Ruby on Rails. This book shows you how to do it, step by step …

It’s no wonder this book has been described as the best Ruby on Rails beginners’ book on the market.

If you’ve ever thought about trying out Ruby on Rails, you’ll never get a better chance to learn why everyone’s talking about this revolutionary web development framework.

The book isn’t quite up-to-date — it covers Ruby on Rails 1.1.6 rather than Ruby 1.2 — but the material in the book as well as the code examples seem to be compatible with the current version. The book has been reviewed quite favorably, and it looks as though it might make a good companion to a book like the Pragmatic Programmers’ Agile Web Development with Rails.
