RoR Installing Devise

This section moves WAY too quickly without much explanation. I find myself rewinding 5 or 10 seconds all the time because Jason Seiffer just says "Next we're going to copy these lines and paste them into this file", but he's using techniques that are exclusive to his text editor. I can't just type ctrl+t and start looking for a file name using Coda.

He should not use editor-specific instructions, and should take some time to actually explain where these files are. The lesson is easy enough to follow, it's just extremely fast moving without proper explanation.

Hi Josh, I'm really sorry for the trouble. I'll take that in to account when preparing future lessons.

Thanks for your response Jason. Real responses from the instructors are part of the reason I love Treehouse.

It was only in that one video, the rest before and after (so far) are much more clearly explained in terms of file directories.

Thanks again for the response!
