About the Book
Rails is a full-stack, open source web framework powered by Ruby. Now in version 4, Rails is mature and powerful, and to use it effectively you need more than a few Google searches. You’ll find no substitute for the guru’s-eye-view of design, testing, deployment, and other real-world concerns that this book provides.
Rails 4 in Action is a hands-on guide to the subject.
