I have a project for Facebook which I’ve done a little work on. But, at this juncture I need to decide whether to proceed with Ruby or PHP. PHP is the sanctioned tool for Facebook – since they seem to have abandoned all other development tools. Ruby on Rails is the most beloved tool of the web. Every developer turns into a poet and philosopher after getting RoR on themselves.
So, I got the beta PDF of Developing Facebook Platform Applications with Rails from Pragmatic Programmers. So far, the book is a pleasure to read.
To support it, I also got a beta PDF of Agile Web Development with Rails, 3rd edition.
