I'm glad to finish this Rails 4 course, because it is so helpful and informative. We are working on a new project where we use Rails 4. Thanks for you, I can teach Rails 4 tricks for my colleagues. :)
Keep up the wonderful work you've been doing. I really enjoyed Rails 4: Zombie Outlaws, and I am sooo impressed with graphic/UX skills! Well done Gregg and the team at Envy Labs.... Just awesome work guys. -Alex Jolovic
I've watched as your excellent courses have gotten better and better. In particular, the generic user interface keeps improving in subtle ways that indicate a high level of responsiveness to your user community. At this point, I think the user interface is nearly perfect. It's hard for me to imagine how you can improve it further.
