Get O’Reilly’s Excellent RJS Book for $6.50

By Peter Cooper / June 14, 2006

O'Reilly has just released "RJS Template for Rails" by Cody Fauser, the god of RJS templates. RJS templates are used in Ruby to create a full AJAX experience. They let you adjust and add elements onto the current page without reloading by using nice, clean Ruby code, without getting down and dirty with JavaScript.

I've just bought the book and it's 58 pages of goodness. I don't work with RJS too often, so this guide is already opening my eyes to my techniques I wasn't aware of before. If you're developing Rails apps and aren't intimately familiar with RJS, you need it.

It's usually $9.99 to buy, but use the promotional code of DSUG and you'll get 30% off bringing it down to just $6.50.

    I feel like such a fool,
    I just bought the book half an hour ago for $9.99

    Oh well, more luck next time...

    Oh, a few bucks doesn't hurt too much :)

    I just hate it when I go through checkout processes, see "Promotional Code" boxes, and it makes me feel like I'm missing out, so I always go on the hunt for codes :)
