Reading

I enjoy learning stuff about multiple disciplines. Here you will find the books I am reading now and the ones I already read.

Reading now

The Rails 5 Way

Author: Obie Fernández.

Language: English

Programming Phoenix

Author: Chris McCord, Bruce Tate, José Valim

Review: Great book for getting into Phoenix but it covers version 1.2. There has been major changes in version 1.3 affecting core topics such as project structure. Although it is backwards compatible, some explanations are obsolete, reading now the explanation why something was in that way and seeing it in the opposite way today is confusing. New version is scheduled for December 2017.
