Ruby and Rails in more and more places

I just got a draft manuscript of Edmond Woychowsky's "AJAX: Creating Web Pages with Asynchronous JavaScript and XML". I haven't really paid any attention to it yet (too much other stuff on my plate), but I was intrigued to see: "Includes extensive code examples and primers on key Ajax technologies, from Javascript and XMLHTTP to Ruby on Rails" (emphasis mine) on the front cover.

Looking further, this amounts to two chapters (nearly 30 pages) on Rails and Ruby. Admittedly, this is not much space (and Edmond could have polished his Ruby up a fair amount) but it is a nice mention, and takes up over 10% of the book.

What's next? A ruby introduction in an Introduction to Linux book? Oh, wait, that's a rant for another post.

More information about this upcoming book is available from its: Prentice Hall homepage. You can also pre-order a copy here (
