I have to say; Really NICE work! This is how you should learn and hopefully one day this is how schools teach... God job guys!
Really great course. I feel that there were a few things I understood from previous MVC experience that a complete beginner might have had a tough time with, but I feel like I learned a lot.
I really enjoyed Rails for Zombies because the difficulty level really hit the mark. I had to think about my answers, but the program wasn't so hard as to put me off from finishing. I'll be doing Rails for Zombies 2 soon.
