Do you use Rails and wish there were 25 hours in a day? If so, then yes!
If you use Rails at least semi-regularly, whether you're just starting out or have been using it for years, you’ll find that the tips and tricks in Efficient Rails will not just save you time, but put a smile on your face.
No! While tools like Vim and Tmux make for a productive Rails development environment, they're not for everybody. Efficient Rails will cover core components of Rails that every developer uses. This way, whether you use Vim or Emacs, Sublime or Atom, RubyMine or Aptana, each and every upgrade will be relevant and useful to you (at least that’s the goal).
If you're interested in learning about how to use tools like Vim and Tmux to craft a perfect Rails IDE, keep an eye out for a future product. The best way to do this is to subscribe to the mailing list.
The ebook version is currently available on Gumroad! You can view details at gum.co/efficient-rails.
The initial ebook package will cost $39. If you can save yourself a cumulative hour using the tips and tricks in Efficient Rails, the book will have paid for itself. Although you’ll save way more time than that.
If you don’t feel that you’re truly a more productive and happy Rails developer after reading the book, I’ll gladly refund the purchase in full, no questions asked.
Initially, Efficient Rails will be an ebook. The package will include all major formats: PDF (for desktop reading), Mobi (for Kindle) and ePub (for iBooks and other e-readers). If there’s enough interest after launching and refining the ebook, I will look into dead-tree publishing routes.
After purchasing the ebook package, you will receive free updates to the edition you purchased. These updates will be sent to you automatically and will include inevitable code corrections, typos and other improvements based on reader feedback.
