You may not know it, but you've probably used software written by John Barnette. He's a committer to RubyGems. His initial attempt at fixing the test fixture problem shipped with Rails 2 over three years ago. In this course, John tries to build a simple group chat application. And amazingly, he actually completes a prototype and deploys it!

[Autogenerated] It's people code, and this is the second installment of the play by play. Siri's. You may not be aware of it, but you've probably used code. Written by John Barnett, he's a Ruby Gems commit ER. He made one of the first attempts at solving the problem of fragile test fixtures over three years ago. It shipped with rails, too. He drove many of the initial feature ideas behind the get hub issues. Bug Tracker. He's currently the CTO of audio socket. Every time I write code with John, I learned something that ends up sticking with me for quite a while, and it's usually something practical that I can use in my applications. Unlike other peop, code screen casts will run through a live coding session with very little explanation. Positive replay If you find something confusing and look for the tips in the lower right hand corner of the screen. In most play by play sessions, we don't end up with a complete project. But we did here. Look at the code download for the completed project
