Rails for Beginners, Site Editors, and Skypack

Feb. 12, 2021, 1 p.m. (1 year, 9 months ago)

[00:01:43] The guys chat about callbacks. 

[00:04:46] Chris tells us about the new course he did, “Ruby on Rails for Beginners.”

[00:08:58] Andrew asks Chris if he actually talked to people who are newer in Rails to figure out about the pry or if he had a sense of it because of where he’s at in the community.


[00:11:57] Jason hints at wanting to make a course on SQL for Active Record for Rails Developers, which gets Chris and Andrew excited.  

[00:14:22] Chris mentions how he put up a bare bones site that needed some examples for better minitests.com.

[00:16:48] Jason spills the beans about rebuilding their site editor. Andrew wonders what specifically wasn’t working in StimulusReflex for him and what prompted him to rely more heavily on CableReady.


[00:23:36] Andrew tells us a “fun fact,” and he asks Jason what he thinks is the coolest part about the new editor and how is he adding Webpacker.

[00:27:43] Chris talks about fiddling with madmin and using Skypak. Andrew tells us all the things you can do with Skypak.


[00:32:08] Andrew and Chris talk about Snyk, a security company.

[00:33:07] Chris announces that Heroku now has a license for Rails LTS to test against old Rails versions for the Ruby Buildpack.

[00:33:34] Chris talks about an issue he dove into with turbo that came up on the GoRails community. 

[00:37:17] We end with Jason announcing the release date of his final StimulusReflex course.
