Hi, and Welcome to Hands-On: Building Ribbit! I’m Andrew Burgess, and in this course we’ll be building a twitter clone in Ruby on Rails. We’ve been doing a series about building Twitter clones on Nettuts+; now, here’s a screencast version that will take you from nothing to a deployed rails app.

Hi! I'm Andrew Burgess, and I'm a connoisseur of all things programming. I'm from near Toronto, Canada, and I've been fooling around with computers for nearly my whole life, both hardware and software. Right now, I'm finishing up a computer science degree. For almost a decade now, I've been playing around with over a dozen programming languages on several different platforms, from JavaScript to Java, from Ruby to Befunge. My favourite has always been JavaScript. I've always enjoyed writing, so when I discovered Tuts+ in 2009, I was excited to start writing tutorials. Since then, I've been writing tutorials and producing screencasts for Tuts+. Right now, I'm a course instructor and I produce mostly JavaScript-related courses. Maybe you've seen Building a Web App from Scratch with Angular.js or Node.js from Scratch; that's me! I've also written a few ebooks, like Getting Good with Git, Getting Good with JavaScript, and, more recently, Backbone.js Blueprints.
