Ruby on Rails Screencast - Iteration 3 - Ryan Bates
There are some really helpful people in the Rails community, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who helps bunny and green coders more than Ryan Bates. Ryan's own site Railscasts.com is easily my favourite screencast - I like it better than my own! I attended RailsConf 2007, where it was revealed that REST would become the preferred way of building Rails apps. REST is so much front and centre that in the upcoming Rails 2.0 the scaffold generator is going to be replaced by scaffold_resource. Ryan walks me through this code line by line, explaining what things are and how they work. Thanks Ryan for the guided tour into a working Rails app. It's really helping me learn how this stuff fits together.
