Working on a Rails app without using the console is like flying a 747 without instruments. You can see where you're going if it's nice out but hit some bad weather and you're lost in the dark. In this talk I'll teach you the battle-tested console commands and techniques I use on a daily basis. We'll be spiking features, databasing, patching production apps, automating grunt work - the sky's the limit. You will leave with a firm command of the console and its role in your workflow.
