The Book.

Posted by ezmobius Mon, 30 Jan 2006 23:44:00 GMT

So I have been very busy with all my jobs and projects, especially the book. It is coming along well though. I am still on target to get a beta release in late March so stay tuned.

Sorry i haven’t been updating my blog much but I have been otherwise involved. Hopefully I won’t let it go so long between posts.

    God! We need your book NOW!!!!! Sorry, but I spent the better part of a week wrestling with simple configuration issues because people just kept pointing me back at the Rails Wiki. The Wiki is not only out of date, It's WRONG and missleading in many places for Rails 1.0 deployment! I come from a Windows Background with much experience in large scale clustered .NET infrastructure. The transition to Rails on top of Unix deployment is almost overwhelming. Many of my preconceptions are killing me. It's tough to know where to look for answers. I hope your book nails it, not only for the existing Unix/Linux reader, but for us people trying to make the leap from Windows. Death to the Rails Wiki!

    Paul, I am working hard on it so you can become the Engineer for your own train. The focus is on debian linux for servers and lighttpd/fcgi, but apache will be covered as well as scgi. I want people to learn enough from the book so they can get their own VPS or dedicated box and run rails as fast and securely as possible. Although the book will cater to intermediate to advanced rails users, newcomers won't be totally lost either. There will be lots of links to good resources and stuff like that. Stay tuned.

    I have to agree with Paul. I think this book is going to be worth every damn penny. I hope you have something like a beta book thingy happening. As much as I would like to have this book in hand, I would say take your time. I used your rails setup doc to setup my layeredtech box and I gotta tell ya, if your book is written with the same care and attention to detail as is this document (which I'm sure it is), you'll have a classic book on your hands. Best of luck and thanks, Amr

    Oh, Ezra! The book, the book. We love it already, even if it ain't yet available. I hope you know how much pain you ease when you sit with the work of typing it. Here we are, eagerly awaiting it.

    If you get these errors it means that you are trying to send something to the drb server that cannot be marshalled over drb. This is the case when you want to send an active record to a worker as an arg. To get around this you need to add include DRbUndumped into the class def of whatever model you want to send as and arg. like so:
