Is there going to be any new Ruby content any time soon? I feel that the "Rails Track" is out-of-date and hard to follow

Instead of dicking around with Vagrant and VMs, why not just teach over a cloud IDE like C9 or Nitrous? It'll be a good way for Team Treehouse to network and connect with one of the cloud IDE services.

Also, I think the Rails track should be re-done because it's currently hard to follow. In my opinion it should be renamed "Web Development with Ruby" and go something like this:

1.) Sinatra Tutorial (it's easier to learn and follow compared to Rails) 2.) RSpec BDD Tutorial 3.) Heroku + AWS 4.) Databases + ActiveRecord 5.) Rails 6.) More Advanced Rails

Take that with a grain of salt though, I'm not a Ruby/Rails expert ;) hehe.
