No idea what's going on in this video
Besides the conceptual overview, I know we are adding gems (or libraries, am I right?) to this specific application, I have no idea what's going on. I understand the git stuff and the prerequisites but other than that.. Have no idea what he was walking me through on a low-level.

The rspec-rails and Capybara are both gems (or third party libraries of functionality) that aid in testing. If you have done any jQuery courses, think of them a bit like a jQuery plugin. In other words, these are small bits of code that other developers have worked on that you can incorporate into your program. The group :development, :test do etc stuff are Ruby (code) blocks that allow you to set rspec-rails and Capybara to your development/test and test groups respectively. If you don't know what a Ruby block is, I recommend taking some of the courses in the Learn Ruby track.

I understand. I'm in the same boat. I'm hoping everything becomes clear later on because right now I'm just blindly following along and doing as he says but I have no idea why we are doing each step or what the outcome will be.
