I was curious what the final results were. At one time I think about 30 people expressed interest, how many people were at the end?
What did you think about the study group? What would you do to make it better? Slow down? Add in some Ruby code to supplement Hartl's book?
Any feedback is welcome!

I actually started working on the tutorial about the same time you started the group, but didn’t even stumble across this subreddit until the middle of October. I didn’t really follow your weekly “homework” to a tee but kind of used it as a measure of my own progress and actually just finished it Sunday night. I think I was spending about 15-20 hours a week since I started and was barely able to keep up with you.
I feel like once you hit chapter 7 is when it starts to get tough. Towards the end I felt like I was rushing through, but it was partially because I wanted to get going on my own project, and I was still spending about a week on each chapter after 8.
I got about halfway through following the weekly tutorials before starting on my own RoR application and just referencing the book from time to time after that. Once I started my application I didn’t see a need to actually finish the books application.
