Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm the creator of GoRails, Hatchbox.io and Jumpstart. I spend my time creating tutorials and tools to help Ruby on Rails developers build apps better and faster.

About This Episode

  config.action_controller.asset_host = "abcdefg1234567890.cloudfront.net"

  # Optional, must use if you're serving from something other than, ::, or localhost
