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.

So i am busy writing my book over here. It’s a ton of work let me tell you. But it is going to be very rewarding.
The book is turning out to be a community effort of sorts. I have a few of my favorite and most respected rails developers writing parts of the book(topfunky & technoweenie) and the author of the great lighttpd webserver is going to personally cover the configuration of lighty in detail.
So if you don’t see me on the rails list or on #rubyonrails as much anymore you know where I went ;-)

So I have great news! I am going to be writing a book for the Pragmatic Programmers. This is such a great chance for me that there was no way I could pass on it.
Thank you for all the support and people who commented that they would like to have this book written. Its definitely one area where the rails docs are not sufficient as well as being very fragmented and hard to decipher which way is the way to go.
Now I must buckle down and write the thing! But I am totally looking forward to this book and I have some great people working on it with me. It looks like there will be 3 people writing a chapter on two on things they know a lot about. I can’t say just yet who they are but when the time comes I will let on.
I am so honored that the Pragmatic Programmers are giving me this opportunity. And I will be working on the book with some of the rails devs that I most respect.
So check back often and i will give updates as things get closer to beta. Thanks for all the support. I hope that this book will be an valuable asset to rails programmers that are ready to step things up to the next level.
