SB Apprenticeship: Day 35

Turns out you shouldn't leave your water on the floor unaccompanied when there's a dog around. :)

  • What did you learn yesterday?
  • What are you going to do today?
  • What do you expect to learn?

Monday! I’ve never been one of those Garfield people, but I will admit to dragging this morning. Blerg.

Friday I didn’t end up pairing with Brandon because I signed up to help out with a labs project that ended up taking more time than I anticipated. I was able to make a lucidchart to diagram out the bookstore project, which made it look a lot less involved than I thought, but that was about the extent of the work I managed to get done on Friday.

Today I’m going to work on the bowling kata in the morning and pair with Brandon at 1 to start working on the bookstore app. He said he would help me with the initial Devise stuff, which I think will be helpful. I don’t think Devise is hard, there’s just a lot of moving parts, and having someone who knows it really well will help. I’m still a little nervous about this app, I feel very unprepared, but I’m sure it’ll be fine and I’m just being paranoid.

What do I expect to learn…I think that there is probably some best practice that I’m not doing when it comes to starting new projects, and Brandon is great for showing those. Hopefully I’ll learn Devise to the point where I can use it again and not have to be walked through it. And I think today is the day I start figuring out Cucumber and Capybara. Moar testing frameworks!
