Andre Lewis has been hard at work since September 2006 translating and rewriting the PHP-centric edition of our Beginning Google Maps Applications book into Ruby on RAILS — and we’re giving away
3 4 copies over the next 3 weeks!
If you’re interested in entering the contest please simply visit http://googlemapsbook.com/contest and fill out the form. We’ll randomly draw three winners on the 15th of March, 2007 and ship some shiny new books.
Please feel free to share the link with all of your friends and user groups. If we get an overwhelming response we may give away a few bonus copies to increase your odds of winning.
About our new book
All of the easy to follow examples that you’ve come to love from the PHP edition are still here, only they are now implemented in the Model-View-Controller paradigm that Rails uses at it’s core. The book won’t teach you RAILS anymore than our first book taught you PHP, but if you’re already familiar with RAILS then you will love the impressive and educational examples in this book.
For those of you who can’t wait three weeks to find out, Beginning Google Maps Applications with RAILS and Ajax is now available from our favorite online book retailer. A spare copy never hurt anyone :)
