    This seems really great. I love the design and the animations and the pricing seems reasonable (obviously depending on how good and consistent the content is).

    This might be petty, but I'm really not a fan of the term unicorn. Too self aggrandizing for a skill set that's no longer that rare.

      Thanks Joel!

      I was wary of the term at first, but I've fully embraced it, haha. But I think that it's still a pretty rare skill set to have. Definitely not as rare as maybe a few years back, but I think we could still come a long way as a community.

      That was my entire goal with Unicasts, to teach people those skills to be able to take their ideas from start to finish :)

    I can signup right now, but i'm worried if it happens to be same as any other tutorial site.

      Hey Arun,

      I don't think there is really any other tutorial site that takes you step by step through planning, designing + coding a rails web app (that I know of at least).

      Unless you meant something else?

        Hey Mackenzie,

        I was thinking about joining, but am currently in the frontend foundations course on Code School. I'm also going through John Duckett's book, and a Head First book as well.

        How much frontend do you cover in the course, or do you assume that the designer already has a solid understanding for html/css/javascript etc.?

          Hey! I do assume that you have a basic understanding of the front-end (ie I don't spend a whole bunch of time explaining what every little thing does, but I do explain as I go), but I do go step by step through coding the entire front-end of the web app so you can see everything I do :)

      I've yet to give this a go, though I've been going through his 12 in 12 videos and I've learnt a ton so far!

      Definitely interested in giving this a go once I've been through those.

    "I'm a unicorn, you can be one too. Give me money"

    It's cool to be teaching tho i guess.

    If this is still up and running in the summertime, (which I really hope it is), you'll have me in no doubt. Looks really amazing ;)
