Exceptional!!!

Ryan is nothing short of amazing! The Rails community would be far less bright without him. I have spent countless hours over the past 2 years going over rails casts time and time again in my Ruby and Rails education. It's uncanny how often Ryan comes out with exact episode to solve the problem I'm currently having.

The production quality is great and the content is fantastic. Check out his pro episodes too on his website. They're well worth the $9/mo

GREAT!!!

This is an outstanding podcast. Ryan Bates has a tremendous amount of knowledge, which he can brilliantly convert to easy to understand videos.

A great quick and informative learning experience

When I got brought on to the Ruby on Rails engineering team at my work, my boss suggested that we all watch at least 1 Railscast a day. This is good advice that I would pass on to anybody who is interested in learning Rails. I had no RoR experience whatsoever and watching one of Ryan's screencasts definitely sped up that process and helped me understand a lot of core features along with some awesome Gems that are out there. I even used CanCan for the first time on my project and watching the Railscast helped tremendously. Keep up the great work!!
