As you know from a previous post, I’ve been working on a “domain specific language” for election ballot processing. In my search for information I got a pointer to a book called: Ruby Best Practices
. It’s not out yet, but it looks like it will be excellent.
You can get a sample chapter (which contained lots of information relevant to my domain specific language work) here.
In it you will “[… snip] look at a favorite topic for budding Rubyists. I’m going to share the secrets behind building flexible interfaces that can be used for domain-specific applications.”. Hmm. Does that make me a budding Rubyist? I thought I had already budded 🙂
Anyway, I really got a lot out of the sample chapter and look forward to when the book is out.
