Refactoring: Ruby Edition available on Amazon

It's been about 18 months since my first entry about Refactoring: Ruby Edition. It's been a long journey, but the book should be seeing day light in the next few months.

It's available for pre-order on Amazon now, and it should also be available on Safari in the near future.

Thanks to everyone who helped, and I hope the book is as fun to read as it was to write.

    Congratulations Jay!

    A refactoring book was long overdue and I'm glad to see you wrote it using ruby! Do you ever get any sleep?

  5. @Jay, have you found any refactoring tools for ruby / textmate? I'm pretty new to this domain, but I can't even seem to find an 'extract method' bundle at the moment.

    Once of these days I'll sit down and figure out how to write my own.

  6. @Matt, I haven't seen refactoring tools for textmate, sorry.

    There are other IDEs that have some refactoring built in, but I don't think the pros outweigh the cons overall. Hopefully that will change shortly.

    Cheers, Jay

  7. I just got this book and have been enjoying it, but I found an error in the first chapter. I've been looking online for a list of errata, to see if it's already been caught, but I can't find any. Is there something out there already? If not, who can I submit the error to?
