About

"Ruby Object Model: The eBook" is a eBook about the intermediate layer of Ruby. 

It covers the key concepts behind classes, objects and modules in Ruby:

  • The Class class
  • The Module class
  • The Object class
  • The constants + anonymous classes
  • Metaclasses + self
  • Why a class/module can be re-opened ?
  • Metaprogramming and classes
  • The Object#send method
  • Object binding
  • The ancestor chain + Method Lookup Path

For example, if you don’t know that the Module class is an instance of the Class class, stored in a constant and whose instances cannot be instantiated then this sentence will make sense after reading this book. :-)

Acquiring this knowledge will ease the understanding of the complex notions behind the Ruby on Rails and the other important projects that you've to deal with everyday.

I expect to release the eBook for November 15th 2018.

Risks and challenges

Thank you to everyone involved and I hope you'll all enjoy the Ruby Object Model eBook as much as I'll enjoy creating it.
