It's the perfect content if (like me) you're interested in Rails. I've enjoyed with all the concepts, some of then are a bit hard if it's the first time that you learn about them but all is very well explained.

Thank you for imparting me this knowledge, I use Ruby professionally and the knowledge I've learned will help me tremendously, specially the use of ActiveSupport::Concern, yields and &blocks, instance_eval and DSL! I'm becoming more confident and looking forward to apply my newly learned skills. What I really like to see is a course about Ruby 2.0, tackling about it's new features like named parameters and safer monkey patching via Refinements. Also, I would really like to see a course about designing DCI (Domain-Context- Interaction) apps in Ruby, and in Rails.

The course was great, I especially loved the DSL wrap-up, that really tied things together for me. One thing I will say, I think it was in Level 1 or 2, but it got to a point with procs and blocks that I didn't see anything about in the video before the exercises. I really think procs and blocks could've had a little more time devoted to them.

Very much enjoyed this. However, it would be great to see the evaluated output. Would be able to avoid looking at the hints a bit more when you're not receiving obscure error messages.

1\. Content is cool. 2. Streaming lag occurs too frequently (I'm in Korea) 3. Content flow is too fast. It goes to next slide even I couldn't yet read the code.

This course lets you learn some of the more advanced bits in ruby. I really liked it because it finally let me understand the block and proc syntax a lot better. This also made me read code of other people a lot better because the topics discussed in the course can and should be be found in any project.

Great class. I learned a lot. But it was hard to see the tags/links to main.rb in challenges.

Learned a lot and had an 'a ha' moment, so it was well worthwhile. I would love a Ruby Bits Part 3 using the same theme. I could see extending the DSL, and saving the data to a file, and to a database with active record. This would take the framework and make it much closer to a "real world" program. (It would be pretty unreasonable to key in data every time you started the program) How does one save objects to a file? How would one use active record when there are variable numbers and types of tags, etc. Thanks

Exercises (and also examples) are too poor. They seem a bad idea in its contexts (define_method and tweet_as examples seems better if did not implemented dynamic). Too unrealistic. The exercises are often weak. Make all that DSL to add a game to a library? They are also too much "tutorialized": "Now that we can add games to the library, ... Implement system and year methods in the Game class that store the data in instance variables, then use instance_eval to run the block in the context of the game object." See? Step 1: do this (as in the slides). Step 2: modify that. Step 3: Type this. Step 4: Use that. I seem too "complainer", :-D. Overall the course is great and I really learned DSL, metaprogramming and the power of Ruby to simplify stuff!

It was a very good course. But I had expected some more. But the wrap up was great. It not only shows where to go next, but also encourages you to read more. :)

First of all, I appreciate the effort that Codeschool is putting into teaching as a former educator (I taught at Clark University and Northeastern University for 10 years). So I know that a lot goes into creating something like what you create every month. Having said that, I found Ruby bits 2 to be a bit disappointing. It has been written more with a desire to impress than to teach useful things. Which I found very annoying. Your focus should be not to show "how cool is that" but rather, "it is very useful and here is why" and not even say it.
