A great way to learn Rails 3.1. I look forward to more courses. Biggest drawback though is the jingle...it's stuck in my braaaaaaain.

The production quality of this series was terrific. I liked the advanced topics and the insight on the Rails 3.1 features a great deal. My only complaint would be that the last session seemed to have too many new things thrown in at once and I lost track of what I was supposed to focus on.
