Practical Object-Oriented Design (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 01 October 2018

This book aims to immerse you in an OO mindset and to teach you real-world, object-oriented design techniques with simple and practical examples. Author Sandi Metz demonstrates how to build new applications that can “survive success” and repair existing applications that have become impossible to change. Each technique is illustrated with extended examples in Ruby, and this second edition of the book has been fully updated for Ruby 2.5.
