What Readers Are Saying About The dRuby Book

The dRuby Book is a fantastic introduction to distributed programming in Ruby for all levels of users. The book covers all aspects of dRuby, including the principles of distributed programming and libraries and techniques to make your work easier.

dRuby naturally extends the simplicity and power Ruby provides. Throughout this book, Rubyists should be able to enjoy a conversation with dRuby that makes you feel as if your own thoughts are traveling across processes and networks.
