Is there a summary of changes from previous edition? Is there more emphasis on writing tests before developing functionality?

Thanks.

Dave,

Thanks for the response. I understand the need to stick to the main topic when writing a Rails tutorial.

Can you recommend a book that covers test-first development for Rails? Maybe a Pragmatic Programmers book?

I looked for a list of changes, but couldn’t find. Is the list of changes available to those of us that have not purchased the beta release?

(from PragPub > July 2009)

I visited PragPub for some ale and found some interesting magazine articles.

The articles on Clojure are welcome. I would enjoy being exposed to other cutting edge programming languages in the future.

I’m not sure how a magazine provides more value than publishing the same content to a blog, but I will continue reading each month to see what becomes of this experiment.

Page 22 contains the statement about Progmatic Bookshelf books: “And if you buy one, you’ve got them all: you have purchased a license to the content.” This statement occurred in the context of electronic book formats, but content is content, whether it is electronic or printed.

I am often bothered by the fact that publishers require us to purchase content in both printed and electronic forms. Isn’t the content identical?

(from PragPub > PragPub in Kindle Collections)

Did something happen to PragPub between Issue 23, May 2011 and Issue 24, June 2011? My Kindle is able to add PragPubs to collections up to Issue 23. The three issues beginning with Issue 24 are not found by my Kindle when attempting to add items to a collection. What happened?

Does GLI 2.5 support multi-level command suites? If so, are any examples on how to use this feature available?

Thanks for the helpful documentation. Nested command blocks work as advertised.

Pages 104 and 105 describe caching and refer to Russian doll caching.

Iteration D1 also needs an explanation of concerns. What are they and why are they useful?

(from Agile Web Development with Rails 4 > Ch.10 combining items in cart)

The migration is required for instances where multiple duplicate items were added before the quantity was added to line_items. If you had two separate line_items that each had Coffeescript before the quantity was added, the cart would end up with two separate line_items for Coffeescript–one having a quantity of 1 and the other with 1 + however many were added after the quantity enhancement.

This type of DRM is the best. Hopefully it catches on.

(from The Cucumber Book > Figure 3 unreadable and not scaleable on Kindle)

Figure 3 is tiny and not scaleable when viewed on Kindle. Figures 1, 2, 4 and 5 have no such issues.
