Updates for Treebook videos?

Any plans to update Treebook series for Rails 4, Bootstrap 3, etc.?

These videos are probably one of the better ones and pretty in-depth but the problem is that they are very outdated. Any plans to update them or release new series that will cover similar topics? That todo video is pretty basic, building a social network was a real gem...

You can easily apply the principles in the Social Network ideas to the ODOT app. The principles are the same, just differences between Rails 3 and Rails 4. I recommend you try to expand your ODOT app by adding statuses, friends, etc. It's good practice and allows you to really practice your skills.

I'll look into ODOT, it looks like it's a multi part video as well. I thought it's going to be very basic app, I didn't see authentication and other parts.

You'd have to contact support, maybe they have some inside info about Treehouse's future plans for Rails courses. Odot was basic? Did you do all 8 courses related to that app? They are different than Treebook, but not basic :).

Yeah my fault, I didn't see that there is more to that app. That will keep me busy.
