Everyday Active Record: Application preview

Active Record models are the foundation of every good Rails application. Learn how to get the most out of the Active Record features that you use on a day-to-day basis from a popular Rails developer and screencaster. In these screencasts, Ryan Bates incrementally builds the models for a Rails application and refactors them over time to address new features. All the code is based on Rails 2.1 features.

Throughout these 20-30 minute screencast episodes, you’ll get inside the mind of an experienced Rails developer: his thought processes, his development techniques, the tools he uses, and the tricks of the trade. You can follow along as he adds new features to shape the application over time. You’ll also see how he troubleshoots problems along the way. You’ll not only learn more about Active Record, you’ll also see ways to streamline your development workflow.
