(Update: it was of course Stuart Eccles not Stefan Richter who did the Rails talk, my bad!)
I already owned the PDF version and it’s always nice to have a the ‘real’ version to flick through. It goes without saying that this is the book to get when you want to get started with Rails, and will remain a handy reference long after you’ve finished reading it. The second version is available now as a constantly evolving ‘beta’ PDF. Kinda like ‘Agile Authoring’
There seemed to be a lot of interest in Rails at LFPUG, I’ll try to get proper posts up on some things Stefan didn’t have time to mention, for instance I use RadRails which is an extremely cool Eclipse plugin, and there’s a new Live CD that may be worth a play with.
