Andrew is back at his Adidas wardrobe again, and Jason calls it BAE, Big Adidas Energy! We also find out that Andrew did some stuff with his GitHub actions repo and a couple of weeks ago the guys Tweeted out, “What do you want us to talk about?” and today, that’s what this episode is about. They pulled up a few Tweets which were about learning Rails without knowing how to read documentation, Matestack, and what first timers should know or do before going to RailsConf. The guys divulge everything they know that should help you to be conference ready. Don’t forget to say hello to them and say the secret password which we bet you won’t forget!
