I want to say a few things about a I read lately, called Design Patterns in Ruby.
In this book, Russ Olsen discusses 14 out of the original 23 design patterns described by the GoF. In addition he also talks about 3 not unique but very common patterns in Ruby. Alongside he gives a very nice overview of Ruby for the Ruby beginner and shows some sweet little tricks.
I find the book very comprehensive with the special paragraphs of when to not use a certain pattern, which is really helpful to not get overly enthusiastic with a pattern and try to use it everywhere. Design Patterns are after all solutions that you should use when you found a fitting problem and not when you made a problem fit.
Eventually I created a presentation with a short (not so short, actually) overview of the patterns for my colleagues which I want to share with all of you here.
The presentation on video:
to Jonathan Weiss, who’s introduction and review pointed me to this book.
