  2. Tutorial on creating a URL shortener

    I think it would be fun to build a URL shortener together. Whether it's a Rails app or a Ruby app served by Sinatra. I've seen your URLs from excid3.com and would like to learn how to generate shortened URLs from scratch. There's several gems/apps/3rd-party that does this but it would be fun to roll our own.

  9. React front end for a Rails back end

    I decided to post this new suggestion since the ideas I saw already suggested pertaining to React with Rails didn't quite match what I thought.

    It would be nice to see an introductory series about linking Rails with React. This wouldn't need to cover specific use cases or use technologies like Turbolinks, ActionCable, etc, it would be nice to just get a simple demonstration of using Rails as a back end API for a React front end. The foundation would be nice to learn here... things like how to convert the data to JSON and back the best way, so…

  10. Beginner / Intermediate tutorial for charts and graphs

    I'd like to see a good video tutorial covering charts and graphs. Ideally these would tie into user accounts and administrators accounts so users can see their graphs while administrators could see the same graphs, just applied to the entire user base.

    Suggested use would be with Chartkick and Google Charts / Highcharts for more advanced charting, and a simpler solution such as MorrisJS-Rails / Raphael (free and pro video?)

  11. Pretty URLs with >= Rails 4.1.2, as using to_param doesn't work anymore

    Since Rails 4.1.2 we can't just add a constraint to our routes resource and update the model with;

    def to_param,
    [id, slug].join('/')
    end

    I've been trying to read all the issues posted to rails on this, but I'm still at a loss on how to do it. For now I haven't updated Rails, which of course isn't healthy.

    An episode detailing how this should now be accomplished in 4.1.2 would be great.

    Thanks!

  12. Re-creating Rails from Scratch

    You mentioned in one of your videos some time ago possibly re-creating Rails from scratch (I assume a smaller subset of course). I feel this would really help me get a better understanding of how Rails works, and teach my co-workers about it.

  20. Devise Mailchimp integration

    I would love to see an episode integration Devise registrations with the Mailchimp API. There are a couple of gems (devise_mailchimp and gibbon) that would help. I'm particularly looking to add new users to a Mailship mailing list on registration.
