The Railscasts Project is #fail

May 20th, 2011

Sadly, I did not complete all of Ryan Bates’ Railscast videos before Railsconf ’11. I didn’t even get close.

It was a great idea that I simply couldn’t complete. But that doesn’t mean it has to die.

Through the conference this year there was a definite theme. And I’m not talking about javascript. @benscofield gave an ignite talk where he said, the way to be awesome is to:

START LOTS OF STUFF

Now, I am awesome. And I am awesome at starting lots of great stuff. And sometimes I finish it too. Particularly, if there is the possibility that I may be fired if I don’t. But @benscofield also said:

QUIT ON STUFF

You have to Know Your Limits as @eliseworthy said. And since @briandoll pointed out that the ultimate productivity hack is having kids, I’ve decided to take this project in a new direction.

It’s no fun practicing being awesome alone. So I propose a monthly meet-up where we watch a Railscast screencast together and discuss it afterwards.

Who’s in?

    I originally tried watching Railscasts from the beginning. Then I skipped out to like #200 or so and I don’t think I’ve missed any since. Its sort of how I start my week at work.
