Railscasts Alternatives

Posted on: July 10th, 2014 by AstonJ 6 Comments

As many of you might know, I LOVE Railscasts – and like many of you, I miss Ryan heaps. He has a knack of being able to make things look super easy; his screen casts enable you to learn a great deal in just a few minutes. I often joke that it is a bit like the Matrix – we look something up, then we know kung fu! Rails Kung Fu of course!

I don’t know about you, but my Rails learning has taken a severe dip since Ryan has been away (I hope you are ok Ryan!!) though, it has also tied in with some personal problems as well, which has left little time for learning anything to be honest.

But the time has come to get back into it, and I hope to put together a list of Railscasts alternatives to tie us over till Ryan comes back. If you can think of any that you feel should be included, please leave a note in the comments to let me know. (more…)

Why RailsCasts deserves to be a success

….and why it will be. has been going almost as long as Rails itself – and it’s always been free. Ryan’s produced almost 300 quality screencasts, and if you average them out to 10 minutes each, that’s about 50 hours of footage!
