Here is a beginner course (in Rails 7.0) that I put together. I hope it can help.

Posted in Beginner Tutorial in Rails 7

I am a CS Professor who teaches a web application class in Rails. I created a series of videos for my class. I want to make them publically avaliable for free. (I do not receive money on YouTube for views either.) The are done using the latest version of Rails. A lot of tutorials out there are old, meaning they still use rake. I wanted to make a series that uses the latest version of Rails, so it wouldn't trip up any beginners when slight chagnes are needed in the current version of Rails.

I hope it is okay to post these videos here to help the Rails community. If not, feel free to delete my post. My videos start with learning the scaffold, then move on to creating a resource without the scaffold, then assocaitions, authentication, and finish with testing (last videos coming soon).

Here is a link to my playlist with all of the videos.

Let me know if you have any suggestions or know where else I should post this.

This is cool, but what about using a git branch, that can be merged into Master once 6.1 is officially released?

Headless browsers do work with screenshots. I use them for development on Cloud9. I have my Rails students use Cloud9 becaue a lot of them have Windows machines, and I don't want to deal with trying to get Rails installed on Windows.
