Adventures in Self Publishing

3 September 2013

Three months ago I decided to write my first technical book and it's earned me over $5,000 in the two weeks since launch day, so I thought I decided to share what I've learned.

I had been reading Nathan Barry's excellent book Authority and something about it inspired me. I started throwing around ideas, things that I knew well and that weren't well covered already, and I turned up Stripe. I know Stripe very well having used it for a bunch of projects in the past few years. I also know Rails, using it in most of those projects plus at my day job. I knew for sure that there were things about payment processing that weren't really talked about much in the 10 minute Stripe tutorials. Thus began my five month journey of writing and self-publishing Mastering Modern Payments: Using Stripe with Rails.

Announcing: Mastering Modern Payments: Using Stripe with Rails

15 July 2013

Over the past few years I've put together a number of projects that use Stripe and their Ruby API to collect payments and manage subscriptions. I've learned quite a bit about how to effectively use the things that Stripe provides to my best advantage. Two months ago I decided that I would like to share that knowledge and so I started working on a guide to integrating Stripe with Rails and today I'd like to announce that Mastering Modern Payments: Using Stripe with Rails will be available on August 15th, 2013.
