Deploying Rails Applications is Released as a Beta!

Posted by ezmobius Thu, 16 Aug 2007 16:13:00 GMT

Just a quick note to say that after 22 months and many many rewrites my Book “Deploying Rails Applications” Has gone Beta! This is a super early beta and we will be shooting to add a chapter every 3 weeks until the print book is done.

I have to give a huge thanks my coauthors Bruce Tate, Geoffrey Grosenbach and Brian Hogan. Thanks for making it happen guys!

Now this is an early beta so expect rough edges and markup. But we wanted to get this out there before deployments changes again and caused another rewrite ;)

    Will you change the capistrano chapter to reflect examples with capistrano 2.o?

    I just read over the toc and I'm kinda wondering who the (expected) target audience is going to be? --R

    Yes the book will be updated to cap2 in a few weeks when new chapters come out. Mostly the intro and theory stuff is in there now. The advanced chapters will come out one chapter every 3 weeks.

    It will be great if you could cover some of the caching methodologies, using memcache (not many good books to find on this), some example would be great load balancer configurations and recommendations and also briefly touch upon deploying and configuring mysql cluster (also how to build on mysql cluster)

    Congrats on getting to beta! I headed straight to the checkout page :-) I'm looking forward to reading what you write about highly scalable deployments since at RightScale we're doing these for a bunch of customers on Amazon EC2 now and I always like to get new ideas. Also, it would be nice if I could point customers to something written that can help them do more things on their own. Everything is evolving fast, but at the same time the basic principles remain the same...
