What people are saying

"Nick's book is one of the best written books on Ruby on Rails I've seen in quite a while."

- Chris Oliver

"Just looking over the TOC and the sample chapter at the moment. This is one of the most nicely designed tech books I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to read the full thing."


"First of all, thanks for this book. I'm a junior rails dev working mainly in the e-commerce sector for retail and I have to say that it has been a great inspiration. The clear way in which it is exposed, with real examples and solutions reduced to the minimum possible. It has helped me strengthen concepts about service objects and the Single Responsibility Principle and how to work around them. Congratulations and I hope you continue to share this knowledge."

- Diego

"I bought when Nick opened up sales of the beta. Lots of great information on there and a nice code base to go along with it. Well worth the investment in yourself."

- Rob

"Loving Nick’s book. Great addition to the library, helped reinforce a few key concepts, and is a seriously great guide for bridging that “advanced beginner” gap that so many fall into. I love its emphasis on [simplified] tooling, simplicity, & shipping a great product."

I'm a software engineer, business owner, rock climber, husband, father, and we travel full time in an RV roaming the U.S. I built CG Cookie, Blendermarket, SportKeeper, and Mavenseed (this site is on Mavenseed!), just to name a few.
