  • 23:29 I'm curious about making the shift from HTML, CSS, jQuery, Wordpress development to Full Stack JS. It seems the front end world is making a huge shift in that direction, and I thought it would be a good career move for me to do one of these 8 week bootcamps to get me started.

I feel that if I add this skill it could change a lot things for me professional. How can a service like Treehouse help me put it all together?
  • 39:15 I've been learning Ruby for the past 2 months and have now started learning Rails v4. My problem: I'm using Treehouse and they use Rails 3. What kind of issues should expect?

  • 50:47 I would love for you guys to talk a little bit about Content Editable. I work on the project Barley and have learned a lot about CE over the past year and it has been a painful process. There is not many resources out there so it has been mostly trial and error.
