I am really disappointed about the "Building Social Features in Ruby on Rails" Project

I need to be honest, previous projects in Rails Development Track was good, but I am really disappointed about the "Building Social Features in Ruby on Rails" Project in Rails Development Track, I only see a programmer doing stuff not explain a lot, copy and paste a lot of code and say "we talk later about this", misspelling and doing a lot of mistakes.

I hope that the update to this track for rails 4 improve the process to teaching and learning

Thanks for reading

I am on the same page with you Gustavo... I'm just going through it to try to piece together what I can. Its very hard when the explanations for some of the concepts are so short. They also spend 1 to 2 minutes on each video checking in code and pushing it to github while they leave out other aspects which could help us learn better.

The smiles after each video don't help...No offense. :)

This is invaluable to me link has it for Rails 3.2 and 4 just choose on the right hand side. Very detailed and explains it all. As I had similar experience with the Rails videos on here, I feel they are aimed at the more advanced user even though they are labelled as beginner

The rest of the track has been great but this section has been a real bummer. Don't feel like I'm getting much out of it, quizzes are somewhat frustrating and yes the creepy smile stuff at the end probably needs to get clipped.
