We are still building an #eLearning app (it’s been 3 weeks since we started). More to the status later
I decided to make my own course, as the first one to be published on the platform.
One topic I know really well: @rails
Lessons from recording 8 sessions on the weekend
Most importantly: I’m already busy - so I need to optimize my time here.
Idea: how to make an app from start to finish.
Goal: a todo list app, just to stay simple here: “daycheckin”
And I use the newest packages: @Rails 7, #Hotwire, #Propshaft, #Tailwind, #DaisyUI
While I’m coding: I have no idea what people want to know. A lot of things are intuitive for me.
How to solve that?
- Code for 1h, record it
- Give it to a beginner dev
- He asks me questions
- I answer the questions and edit them
The trick here: in between the questions I speed up the recording.
An hour coding gets condensed down, and it’s still fun to watch.
I use @soundraw_io for the music.
- 1h coding time
- plus: 1h editing time
- Resulting video: ~15 minutes
Bonus: this is becoming a game against myself to finish the todo app. I planned 10 sessions, likely need 14 or 18.
Watch it here: Session 01: Building a Rails App in 10h. Rails + Tailwind setup.
