Ruby on Rails book completed!!

Nick Haskins @nphaskins

It’s been a labor of love, but I’m finally able to say that I have finished it! I wrote a 270 page book detailing my simplistic approach to building and maintaining web apps that serve millions of visitors, and generate millions of dollars in revenue. This project took three months to complete, in between the full-time job, side hustles, and living remotely in an off-grid RV.

I’m especially grateful to everyone who has supported this, and the folks who pre-ordered. I’m also thankful for my editor, who really took this diamond in the rough and made it shine!
