It was great to see this app incorporate so much of the material covered in the various courses. Awesome job~!
This was amazing. Please do more rails applications if you can. It was very enlightening!
Super helpful in putting everything in the course together.
Thanks, really nice screencast.
I liked a lot and learned too!
I really enjoy these soup to bits videos. They take the learning in the course and help to see it at the 10,000 ft level.
Moreeee! =D But a different app or the same one but pushing it beyond with more features. I do learned a lot. I don't like writing on erb though - too much verbose.
Course was really helpful. Thanks a lot. On the other hand, it will be more helpful if you also simultaneously make us code also. This course was really fast and did not go step by step for us(for me at least :)
@Surferalp the code is up on GitHub, so you can refer to that in addition to watching the video https://github.com/codeschool/RFZ2SoupToBits - If you have any questions, be sure to check out our forum http://discuss.codeschool.io/t/rails-for-zombies-2/5021
It is actually an easy way to clear(reset) a dirty form. By using jQuery, you can use $('form').reset() method.
These Soup to Bits screencasts are an excellent complement to the courses. Carlos and Gregg make a great team. Great to hear and see some of the practices Carlos uses when creating apps (RVM, seeds file with count of records generated, etc.)!
This is awesome. Great job Carlos and Gregg. Learned so much from this....dare i say as much as i would have learned from a full fledged course !
Please make more of these !! More complex rails apps would be great
Hi guys, you have made awesome work! I've learned really much useful tips and best prictices or conventions about programming in ruby so this was a reason why I survived by whole video.
I hope you'll create more stuff like this but at higher level of advancement.
Great screencast! really helps seeing everything come together.
BTW I use:
<%= debug(params) if Rails.env.development? %>
in my view to show me what params I'm sending over, helps me out a lot.
This is really helpful, especially the debugging. I'd love more of these.
Zubaird, that's a great tip!
Albert, I had an issue with using reset() but I can't reproduce it now. It looks like it does work with our current app, so I've updated the codebase to use that function. Thanks!
Soup-to-bits series almost resemble actual daily life of a programmer. Be able to see how codeschool team identify the problems and work towards the solution are priceless! Congratulation to Carlos Souza and Gregg Pollack for awesome screencasts!
These Soup to Bits screencasts are amazing. So awesome to see the learned/practice content in the courses applied in a real-ish development environment. I know it's a lot of work and time to put these together, but perhaps consider creating Soup to Bits screencasts that combine knowledge obtained in multiple courses. In this one, you dabbled in sass, html5, git, ruby (from ruby bits 2), and js/coffee, but I found myself wanting more content in some of those areas and less in others.
On of the best ways to see how things works in real life, how about deploy this on a production environment?
Francisco, we actually have two screencasts about Rails deployment: https://www.codeschool.com/code_tv/heroku and https://www.codeschool.com/code_tv/deployment-capistrano-part-1
I love Soup to Bits! Rails for Zombies Series is great, but seeing everything put together definitely help me grab the idea better! Seeing people love RoR coding also inspires and motivates me a lot. Thanks, guys!
Wish this was in sublime. I followed, but was showing it to my friend and would have helped a ton for him to understand the app structure and seeing you navigate you through it with sublime. Overall I really liked the realistic concepts covered though. Don't know if it is quite a good follow up video to the zombies 2 video though, a little over the head of most coders that have just watched those two videos.
I though using vim was great, it kept the focus in one place. Really good content in this video also.
This video was really awesome, thanks.
Just finished watching the course, it's been very enjoyable to follow you guys. I've learned a lot and it was a great way to wrap up all the knowledge from the RoR Zombie courses. Great work!
Nice video, maybe can elaborate in a short screencast about "rails g migration", when it fails, how go back, force errors ahd how fix it! (that's is my problem now jejeje)
Any plan about spanish subtitile?, I would like to help
loved it! please do more of these.
Absolutely ace, start to finish with mistakes included was really useful, more please!
This video was fantastic - more stuff like this in future on any / all of your courses would be brilliant.
I agree with all the previous comments, great video that really ties together all the things learned in the Rails courses. Also really good to see everything at once : Git, Rails, Vim etc, makes each separate part feel part of a whole set of tools best used together.
Bravo Carlos, Bravo Gregg ! Awesome video that makes you want to learn more and more...
Great video, thanks so much!
Would been nice to download the files you used when you began working on the app (ie. the files you start copying over on minuted 46) as well as finished files so we can work alongside the video.
To pull the code from 46 minutes we do this (assuming you are in ~Rails_Projects/ReadingList/)
1) cd ..
2) git clone https://gitgub.com/codeschool/RFZ2SoupToBits.git
3) cd RFZ2SoupToBits/
4) git checkout 9b1403d4e4a72d2e06719056cc4d7a525e27ae39
5) bundle install
6) rake db:setup
7) rails s
The server should run as Gregg and Carlos had theirs (note copying the files from another commit won't work at this point as it has later elements, believe me I tried)
Hopefully this helps. I don't know anything about git apart from the intro course I took on codeschool,
Many thanks for all the great courses and to all the codeschool team.
Awesome video, thanks a lot! Very helpful and funny.
Hey guys, any way to add a speed function to the vids? Would love to play this at 1.25 or 1.5 speed just for time constraints.
Enjoyed watching you two work. Keep up this series please.
Thanks for the feedback guys. gxespino, I've added the feature request to add a speed dial. Hopefully have that added in the next week or two.
This is an amazing screencast. Thanks guys.
Summary of the video
- "got it"
- .EACH... oh yeaaaaaah!
- Souza feels dirty if doesn't commit
Jokes aside, great video! I watch all of it!
Amazing screencast! I would love to see more of those as I learned so much :D
Great job, thanks!
Thanks for putting this together. It was super useful. I learned a lot!
Nice video, however I would suggest you create an initial git repo with your external files (bootstrap, styling, etc) so folks at home can easily start from the same page.
Wow thanks a lot ... I learned so much from this course. The content was cool, you guys explain really well, plus you are so honest in the way you show us stuff. Viva code school !
Moar pliz !!
Thanks guys, good stuff
I find these SoupToBits programs incredibly helpful. Two suggestions; 1) in the Ruby Path you should have a link to these two Rails SoupToBits screencasts - it's not showing up for me and 2) For those of us following along, the source code doesn't quite fit since it's the finished product using forms, etc. The solution was to use an older git hub repository as Monki32 very helpfully pointed out. Thanks!
Great sceencast, super helpful.
Regarding the struggle to remove the column and index of genre on books -> you used add_reference :books, :genre, index: true, so it would be easier, cleaner and more logical for other developers looking at your migrations if you just used remove_reference :books, :genre it removes the column and key.
Another quick note, at around the 2 hour mark you guys are using jQuery to reset the 'new book' form, manually resetting each element. There is a reset function in jQuery, which many people think doesn't work because there is a strange requirement involved. Calling $('#new_book').reset() won't do anything, but $("#new_book").reset() will fully reset the form (check boxes, text fields, select fields, radio buttons). Works like a charm.
Why is it that we can pass title, description, and author without a symbol type syntax?
self.keywords = [title, author, description].map(&:downcase).join(' ')
self.keywords = [:title, :author, :description].map(&:downcase).join(' ')
Very cool! Great job.
Awesome, and as people already said: please, record more lessons like these, more rails applications. See the development itself and see how you guys handle with the errors help us not getting stuck.
Really enjoyed the video. It's great to hear you guys explain the process and give some more detail on what was covered.
Nice video, what I really like about these videos is that you are solving same problem(Reading-List app) with different technologies, for me that is very important :)
Guys, your screencasts are simply marvelous! Even cooler that they are connected to your courses to understand and memorize material better. Keep it up!
There's a little drawback though: it's hard to follow the course, especially at the beginning because you created templates of code beforehand. So you have to download it from github, then edit it according to the stage of the screencast, get a bunch of errors etc. But on the other hand it's a practice anyway.
I understand that it was a joke, but I personally would happily learn the Chrome DevTools (mini)course. :) And linux terminal course as well.
And I have a question: I noticed that you've got too this "wall of text rvm error" when there is a bunch of lines like
from /home/user/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.0/gems/railties-4.2.0/lib/rails/commands/console.rb:110:in `start'
along with any error message in the terminal. Is there any way to turn off this reporting? This really clutters the screen and I could not find any solution.
Very cool! Nice content, great job! :)
Great screencast. Particularly like the way in which the screencast reinforces material learnt in the main course.
This is a great video.
One of the things I like the most about it, is the "personal touch".
You guys make mistakes, think about it, find the solution.
Of course we ALL do that, but putting it in a video makes me feel I am seeing a real video with real people. Makes me feel sort of welcome.
Thanks again. You make learning easy.
By the way, clicking on genres will disable the new book opening, due to turbolinks: the page will not be reloaded but the content, but the body will be replaced.
As a consequence the new book link will be new and not being listened to.
I fixed this in my testing app changing books.coffee, putting the ready function into a variable and then...
If someone has a better idea about how to approach this I'd love to hear it!
This is a great screencast. There were some bits where I needed to pause to check out the github repo and do a little catch up so that I could do the work along with the video. However, that in itself was a pretty cool learning experience, in addition to the video itself really hammering home the concepts from the Rails for Zombies 2.
Awesome! I'd love to see more videos getting into more complex architecture needed for most applications. I'd love to see in particular good use cases in rails apps for using things like procs and blocks.
where should I keep image file for paperclip to use it in seeds.rb? what is the best practice
Thank you very much for this video. Helps alot to see you guys develop this from beginning. Love that we see you guys going through the bugs and errors to try to figure out what is wrong and how to fix'em.
After you take the Rails for Zombies 2 course you can watch this screencast to learn more Rails tips and tricks. Gregg Pollack and Carlos Souza build a Reading List app, similar to the ones built in the Soup to Bits episodes for Warming Up With Ember and Shaping up with Angular.
