Coming to life

Oct 7, 2009 • posted by Michael Hartl

After a busy few months filled with travel and contract work, I've finally been able to give the Ruby on Rails Tutorial project the attention it deserves, and now it's really coming to life. As a first step, I've written a markup system to make the Rails Tutorial book available simultaneously as HTML and as a PDF; you can see an example of the markup system (which I call PolyTeXnic) in this short sample document. I've also started writing the main book, and will soon start releasing some chapters to the public. Of course, this is only the beginning—expect to see many exciting announcements here in the coming weeks and months!
