Books I read
- Programming Ruby 1.9 & 2.0. My first book on Ruby, found it very valuable. For sure recommend it as your first book to learn about Ruby, good example, easy to read.
- Pragmatic Scala: Create Expressive, Concise, and Scalable Applications. Good introduction, gives you good overall knowledge of the language, after this book could write some solid Scala code.
- Metaprogramming Ruby 2: Program Like the Ruby Pros. Second book about Ruby. For sure recommend to learn more about it, best practices, hardcore examples. Mostly will be suitable for authors of frameworks.
- Text Processing with Ruby: Extract Value from the Data That Surrounds You. Have not seen any value in this book after reading two books from above. Just basic ideas about how to process text.
- Build Awesome Command-Line Applications in Ruby: Control Your Computer, Simplify Your Life. Same, have not seen any values. Just basic ideas how to write good CLI tools and how to do that in Ruby.
- Working with Ruby Threads. Just a refresh from what you have learned from System Programming course and some examples of how to work with Threads in Ruby.
- A Common-Sense Guide to Data Structures and Algorithms: Level Up Your Core Programming Skills. To simple, to basic.
- Take My Money: Accepting Payments on the Web. Read it just only because of curiosity.
- Ruby Performance Optimization: Why Ruby Is Slow, and How to Fix It. Expected much more from this book. Good set of tools, but wanted to learn more about anything specific for Ruby.
