As seen on the Rails blog, sitepoint.com is giving away free PDF copies of Patrick Lenz‘s book, Build Your Own RoR Web Apps. The offer is good for 60 days. Well, 59d15h at the time of posting :-)

It involves jumping through a couple of hoops, and the book contains a couple of pages containing ads about other Sitepoint books. But nothing too bad, at first sight. And it’s still a free PDF book! So if you know anybody who’s curious about Rails and might want to try it out, you have until the beginning of December to point him/her to rails.sitepoint.com.

Tonight is Montreal on Rails #3! I can’t wait to attend: this will be a nice refreshment from my gruesome C++ tar pit at work, ugh! :-)

The first 2 were very interesting and filled with great people to meet. Tonight promises to be just as great, and as a bonus, we’re leaving behind the small McGill University classroom to be welcome instead by Fred and Ben from Standoutjobs. Can’t wait to see that either!

And great big thanks to Mat and Carl for organizing this monthly meetup!
