Welcome to Intermediate Rails. We'll be building our own Twitter-like service called "Shoutr" where we'll create "Shouts" instead of "Tweets." This topic will let us explore many intermediate-level rails topics. In order to get started, we'll first need to focus on generating a rails application and setting up authentication. We'll be using the gem "Clearance" for authentication, but we'll need to do some custom configuration in order to get it to work the way we want. If you'd like to find out more about clearance you can checkout the Github repository.

As an aside, during the video I'll be making use of the vim editor. If you are interested in the configuration used in the video, you can find more information here.
