The Complete Guide to Avoiding and Fixing Common Rails 3 Code and Design Problems As developers worldwide have adopted the powerful Ruby on Rails web framework, many have fallen victim to common mistakes that reduce code quality, performance, reliability, stability, scalability, and maintainability. Railsa AntiPatterns identifies these widespread Rails code and design problems, explains why they’re bad and why they happen–and shows exactly what to do instead.
The book is organized into concise, modular chapters–each outlines a single common AntiPattern and offers detailed, cookbook-style code solutions that were previously difficult or impossible to find. Leading Rails developers Chad Pytel and Tammer Saleh also offer specific guidance for refactoring existing bad code or design to reflect sound object-oriented principles and established Rails best practices. With their help, developers, architects, and testers can dramatically improve new and existing applications, avoid future problems, and establish superior Rails coding standards throughout their organizations. This book will help you understand, avoid, and solve problems with.
- Model layer code, from general object-oriented programming violations to complex SQL and excessive redundancy
- Domain modeling, including schema and database issues such as normalization and serialization
- View layer tools and conventions
- Controller-layer code, including RESTful code
- Service-related APIs, including timeouts, exceptions, backgrounding, and response codes
- Third-party code, including plug-ins and gems
- Testing, from test suites to test-driven development processes
- Scaling and deployment
- Database issues, including migrations and validations
- System design for „graceful degradation“ in the real world.
Praise for Design Patterns in Ruby "Design Patterns in Ruby documents smart ways to resolve many problems that Ruby developers commonly encounter. Russ Olsen has done a great job of selecting classic patterns and augmenting these with newer patterns that have special relevance for Ruby. He clearly explains each idea, making a wealth of experience available to Ruby developers for their own daily work." -Steve Metsker, Managing Consultant with Dominion Digital, Inc. "This book provides a great demonstration of the key ‚Gang of Four‘ design patterns without resorting to overly technical explanations. Written in a precise, yet almost informal style, this book covers enough ground that even those without prior exposure to design patterns will soon feel confident applying them using Ruby. Olsen has done a great job to make a book about a classically ‚dry‘ subject into such an engaging and even occasionally humorous read." -Peter Cooper "This book renewed my interest in understanding patterns after a decade of good intentions.
Russ picked the most useful patterns for Ruby and introduced them in a straightforward and logical manner, going beyond the GoF’s patterns.This book has improved my use of Ruby, and encouraged me to blow off the dust covering the GoF book." -Mike Stok "Design Patterns in Ruby is a great way for programmers from statically typed objectoriented languages to learn how design patterns appear in a more dynamic, flexible language like Ruby." -Rob Sanheim, Ruby Ninja, Relevance Most design pattern books are based on C++ and Java. But Ruby is different-and the language’s unique qualities make design patterns easier to implement and use. In this book, Russ Olsen demonstrates how to combine Ruby’s power and elegance with patterns, and write more sophisticated, effective software with far fewer lines of code. After reviewing the history, concepts, and goals of design patterns, Olsen offers a quick tour of the Ruby language-enough to allow any experienced software developer to immediately utilize patterns with Ruby.
The book especially calls attention to Ruby features that simplify the use of patterns, including dynamic typing, code closures, and "mixins" for easier code reuse.Fourteen of the classic "Gang of Four" patterns are considered from the Ruby point of view, explaining what problems each pattern solves, discussing whether traditional implementations make sense in the Ruby environment, and introducing Ruby-specific improvements. You’ll discover opportunities to implement patterns in just one or two lines of code, instead of the endlessly repeated boilerplate that conventional languages often require. Design Patterns in Ruby also identifies innovative new patterns that have emerged from the Ruby community. These include ways to create custom objects with metaprogramming, as well as the ambitious Rails-based "Convention Over Configuration" pattern, designed to help integrate entire applications and frameworks. Engaging, practical, and accessible, Design Patterns in Ruby will help you build better software while making your Ruby programming experience more rewarding.
