Ruby Book Club

Last week I asked on Twitter which books are essential for Ruby developers. And after talking with a few people I now have a collection of twelve books.

Let's start with mine.

Eloquent Ruby Pratical Object-Oriented Design Growing Object-Oriented Software Understanding Computation Ruby Unter a Microscope

And if you are doing lots of web development, you should also get Design for Hackers.

Thankfully Lucas and Marco also contributed to my list. Both had some books I already mentioned, so I just post the books that were missing on my initial list:


Ruby Best Practices Confident Ruby Working with unix processes Patterns of Enterprice Application Architecture


Design Patterns in Ruby Metaprogramming Ruby Refactoring Ruby Edition

What are yours?
