Hi All. I think I know pretty much everything there is to know about how to use Rails. 100% of the terminology.
However, I struggle when it comes to making more complex sites. Why? Because the uncountable billions of tutorials I've watched/read are pretty basic, and all of them only briefly touch on ajax.
If I were to read some advanced tutorials, I'm sure all of my knowledge would fall into place. However I can't find any! They're all basic, all introductory. Looking at the contents pages of so called 'advanced' books seem to imply the 'advanced' tutorials cover RESTful architecture and MVC, just stuff I know in my sleep.
I love learning from actual projects. Learning terminology or what aspects of rails are in isolation just doesn't help me at all.
I want a huge, detailed tutorial on
- How to build a forum
- '' a social network (a real deal facebook-esque one)
- '' videosharing site
- An upload manager with upload bar (like on this site)
- '' a file conversion site (Although maybe Rails isn't the framework for that)
- " A github clone. (Gitlab is already on RoR)
- " A CMS
- ... as well as vast and intricate control panels for all of these things. A control panel like this:
Appears to use some ungodly union of ASP and Flash (based on the URL, nothing more), but I'd love to be able to create something like this with Rails and AJAX (only as a practise project). I'm sure I could give it a very good try, but I'm concerned that by the end I'll either have a poorly-organised project / halfway through I'll have to scrap everything because I've realised there's a far better way to do things.
Apologies if I sound annoyed it's just I've been the last 4 months looking for advanced tutorials and just now I've just snapped because there is NOTHING.
