Polished Ruby Programming (Packt)
Wednesday, 04 August 2021

This book provides recommendations and advice for designing Ruby programs that are easy to maintain in the long term. Jeremy Evans, a Ruby committer who focuses on fixing bugs in Ruby, as well as improving the implementation of Ruby, takes the reader through implementation approaches for many common programming situations, the trade-offs inherent in each approach, and why you may choose to use different approaches in different situations. The aim is to impart the skills you need to design robust, high-performance, scalable, and maintainable Ruby applications.
