#231 Routing Walkthrough Part 1 - RailsCasts
You might wonder what the point of this is and if it’s worth browsing around other code, but in my opinion it is as reading Ruby code written by other people is a great way of improving your own Ruby skills. You’ll see tricks and techniques that other people use that you can use later in your own code. Reading the Rails source code is also a good way to learn how to use Rails better and in this case we may well find better ways to write the routes file. If you’re trying to debug a problem or optimize some code in one of your projects or if you’re even considering contributing to Rails then learning its internals is a great way to do so.
