Design Patterns in Ruby 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 StokDesign Patterns in Rubyis a great way for programmers from statically typed objectoriented languages to learn how design patterns appear in a dynamic, flexible language like Ruby Rob Sanheim, Ruby Ninja, RelevanceMost 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 sophisticated, effective software with far fewer lines of codeAfter 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 reuseFourteen 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 frameworksEngaging, practical, and accessible,Design Patterns in Rubywill help you build better software while making your Ruby programming experience rewarding

    Good but overly wordy book of design patterns in ruby Ruby implementations of design patterns are definitely terse which is exciting and the patterns are very useful There were several cases where I could think of simpler or alternate implementations than the ones given e.g composite There was a little too much cruft around failed versions of the design pattern which obscured skimming for successful implementations when using the book as

  2. Angelos Angelos says:

    A solid book on Design Patterns that serves as a nice introduction to the topic.Sadly, it has some serious flaws that prevent it from being great In order of decreasing importance There is a vast amount of typographical mistakes typos in the text and formatting inconsistencies in the code samples This makes reading the book distracting if you are prone to noticing them I found the style of writing to be somewhat wordy I think it would have serve

  3. Marshall Marshall says:

    This was such a fun and useful book It picks 14 out of the 23 commonly known design patterns in programming, and demonstrates how they can be uniquely expressed in Ruby Then it adds threethat are commonly used in Ruby code.This book is so well written, with very understandable explanations and code, and plenty of fun quips to keep it light, but also very concise This book weighs in at 340 pages, which is tiny for a programming book I also like that this

  4. Matt Decuir Matt Decuir says:

    Pretty good overview of the Gang of Four s original Design Patterns, but viewed through the lens of Ruby instead of Java.

  5. Damian Damian says:

    Fantastic intro to design patterns.

  6. Bill Bill says:

    Focuses on the most common of the Gang of Four patterns in one of the most elegant languages Highly recommended for Ruby developers.

  7. C.Ramya C.Ramya says:

    This ruby is useful for shortly handled the code easily

  8. Jason Jason says:

    Great writer and it was really helpful for me to see examples in a language I m familiar with Learned a ton and will be revisiting as a reference for sure.

  9. James Stewart James Stewart says:

    For many the idea of bringing design patterns to ruby is a terrifying one Having taken refuge from over engineered java projects or for that matter, attempts to apply java engineering approaches to a somewhat dynamic language like PHP the baggage that often goes along with design patterns isn t what a recent convert is looking for But as I mentioned in my last review of a design patterns volume, and series editor Obie Fernandez highlights in his foreword, design patterns don t have to be use For many

  10. Leo Gallucci Leo Gallucci says:

    Overall, interesting concepts here.But this book wasn t was i was looking for regarding Design Patterns applied to Ruby.Perhaps the book is a little outdated by now.There is an entire chapter dedicated to Getting started with Ruby and i wonder why wasting pages on beginner stuff on a Design Patterns book..More critics Lacks Ruby idioms, e.g page 181 subject subject BankAccount.new starting_balance Doesn t embrace Ruby syntactic sugar like the memoized accessor subject BankA Overall, interesting concepts here
