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!

    Just looking over the TOC and the sample chapter at the moment. This is one of the most nicely designed tech books I've seen in a long time. Can't wait to read the full thing.

      Thank you!! I really appreciate that.
