Good start Chris! btw, would be nice if you do granular commits on github, everything in 1 commit make it "harder" to follow

That was my bad. I realized I hadn't been making commits while recording but I'll try to do that in the future.

Would it be possible to add categories to this? With like forum_thread belongs to categories and categories has many forum _threads?

Gravatar

Absolutely! I'd set it up the way you mentioned where categories are higher level than forum threads. Then you could have categories#index as the root of the application and list out those, then forum threads inside. That's basically how http://ubuntuforums.org/ operates.

Major props to this video, as well as ALL of your other screencasts. I've been doing Rails for a little over a year now, but I can really appreciate the subtle 'beginner' things that you mention, such as the simple associations explanation, in your videos; I feel like that definitely helps some people who are wanting to dive into Rails at an early level. Keep up the good work Chris!


Gravatar

Just awesome! I wonder how many videos are in this series... Can't wait!


Gravatar

Zomgad this is awesome! Thanks Chris!

I appreciate the series style a lot. It just helps to see how everything fits together. And since I haven't worked on an app for more than 6 months now, this part is a nice refresher.
