Various gems out there to tackle this issue:

@Chris: I've been working with some of these gems before, but I haven't quit found out which one I like best. I'd love to see a video cast on working with jsonB (as at first it can be a bit confusing) and probably an overview of these Gems. Which one do you think works best?

Hi Chris, I‘m familiar with the Wicked gem, bit still I didn‘t find it that easy. A screencast would be excellent, I‘m sure this would be a topic that I‘m not the only one being confronted with.

Hi Chris

Something I'd love to see a video on is on how to build a wizard. I find this not that simple and would love to see how you solve these kind of issues, like in an onboarding process (or any other process):

  • How and where to check weather the user has to go through an onboarding wizard (e.g. first time user)
  • How to lock down the application, that the user is forced to complete the wizard
  • Where to manage state (which wizard step is the user on)
  • How to prevent the user from jumping / skipping a necessary step
  • Allowing the user to return a step and come back (but not jump a step ahead)

GoRails seems to me more like a more intermediate to pro level (and there it's just awesome). GoRails is not really a walk-through and I don't know how easy it is to learn the basics with GoRails. I started to learn with a course on Udemy. The one I've done was I don't know how it compares to other ones, but it certainly helped me in getting up to speed. Today I'm capable of developing RoR applications and constantly consult GoRails for specific topics (e.g. 'how to I implement XYZ').
