- What did you learn yesterday?
- What are you going to do today?
- What do you expect to learn?
Yaay, I finished the Agile Web Dev with Rails 4 book tutorial! I skipped the last two chapters, because I didn’t want to bother with internationalization and deploying to a server. I was right yesterday, they wanted me to actually pay for instances on something like AWS, and I just don’t care that much about that tutorial. It was pretty rewarding to finish it, though. The rest of the book is a big deep dive into the various part of rails, which isn’t really something that you can read straight through, but it is super informative.
Today Brandon and I are going to pair and get started on the bookstore app. I was talking to Patrick about how I was actually pretty nervous about it because it’s such a huge project, and he had some good advice: instead of thinking about the whole intimidating project, break it up into small sections and think about those. I have a general tendency to miss the trees for the forest, so this is valuable advice. Today we’re going to set up the rails project and getting the authentication working. I guess it’s finally time for me to learn Devise! Yesterday we did a little bit of mapping on paper, I’m going to spend the morning filling that out.
Today I expect to learn Devise! We sort of covered Devise at TIY, but it was at the very end, taught by the TA and irrelevant to my final project, so I didn’t pay the attention that I should have. Time to make up for that!
