The rise of JavaScript applications is tremendous. Every week new JS frameworks appear. Every website UI is now JS-heavy.

How can Rails react to it?

Do we need to worry about our jobs?

Asm.js and Web Development

As you can probably see from the code above Asm.js isn't designed to be written by hand. It's going to require some sort of tooling to write and it's going to require some rather drastic changes from how one would normally write JavaScript, in order to use. The most common use case for Asm.js right now is in applications complied from C/ C++ to JavaScript. Almost none of these applications interact with the DOM in a meaningful way, beyond …

Front-end Web Development with Ruby

…for Rails put together by Sam Ruby. It essentially transcribes the Agile Web Development With Rails book into a series of very complete integration tests for Rails. When refactoring Rails for Rails 3, this suite was extremely useful, and helped keep the number of unintentional changes to Rails to a tiny number. It also kept us honest about intentional changes.

This suite is perfect for Tokaido, as it tests every aspect of Rails, which is itself touches a wide swath of …

I finished reading most of Agile Web Development with Rails , fourth edition. This is the third edition that I've bought and read. I still love this book.

This edition is much shorter than the previous editions. I tend to read books cover-to-cover, so I appreciate when they aren't full of reference information that I can find online. I think this book struck the right balance of breadth, depth, and length. My buddy Shailen Tuli thought it was too short. Your mileage may vary.
