If you can read German and you develop with Rails you’ll be happy to know that it republik, the same company that also produces a Java, .NET, and PHP magazine, is about to release a Ruby on Rails Magazine called RailsWay.

The magazine is in print and will be out in Germany, Switzerland and Austria by December 17, 2008. For 2009 they plan to release six issues (in the German language), and I hear they’re planning on an English version, but no ETA on that. The content of the first issue includes:

  • Getting started with Ruby on Rails
  • AJAX and Rails
  • RAILS 2.2 – what’s new
  • IDE’s for RAILS
  • Behaviour Driven Development
  • Metaprogramming With RUBY
  • RESTFull Web Services
  • Featured Website: Qype.com
  • Tips, Tricks, Performance & Security

A DVD comes with the magazine which includes tutorials, videos, free rails books, and a bunch of IDEs. The Editor in Chief is Michael Johann, who has done a great deal to promote Rails in Germany.
