Railscasts

By Vicki Ball

In our opinion, Ryan Bates is something of a Rails stevedore: since March of 2007 he’s been packaging and delivering Railscasts to the interwebs on a weekly basis.

Available through iTunes or via download on the Railscast website, each episode lasts between five and twenty minutes, with shownotes and additional resources also available on the website.


We reckon Ryan’s Railscasts are one of those “must read” resources- whether you’re a novice, a dabbler, a developer in Rails or a hardcore Railshead. The episodes are a mix of tips, tricks, instructional tutorials and demonstrations of the latest features of Rails.

What really makes Railscasts great though, is Ryan Bates’ teaching style. There’s no ego, no agenda, just infinite patience and a natural teaching mind that is able to explain ideas and construct examples that are truly helpful.

Thanks Ryan and please keep ’em coming!
