Screencasts for Ruby on Rails Developers

Our screencasts are here to fill in the gaps, explain the confusing pieces, and give you an understanding you can't find elsewhere. There is a lot of "magic" that happens in Ruby on Rails and it's hard to wrap your head around so many different gems and concepts. You'll get to see my actual development environment, how I think about and design code, and learn how to become a confident developer.
