re: Prime Sieve in (Hopefully) Idiomatic Ruby (And Some Books You Should Read) VIEW POST


Practical Object Oriented Design in Ruby is probably one of the best books I've read about programming in general.
I'd risk to say, every programmer no matter the background or experience should read it.


Did you read 99 Bottles of OOP? She recently released a new version. I've heard similarly high praise, but also that it covers similar territory, and I'm not sure whether or not to buy a copy.


I did (didn't buy it though) but I think the original POODR is a bit better


Agreed, it's a good book. The problem is that small contrived examples like bycycles and gears always end up looking overengineered while actually useful examples are too to big for books.


Agree. But the principles and idea behind how to do ood are really very well explained there
