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

So I spent several hours on that problem I mentioned yesterday, where I couldn’t figure out a way to make Capybara-Webkit acknowledge that a modal happened, before I asked Derek for help, and he told me to just force it to return true and call it a day. Sigh. This is another of those times when I shouldn’t have waited so long to ask for help. Ah well. I did manage to finish that feature file and started to move on to the next one, but my head started to hurt and so I read some of The Clean Coder instead. I gave up soda this past weekend, and have been having intermittent headaches since. Caffeine’s tough, man.

Today I am going to tackle the book index page feature for the bookstore. It keeps getting hung up when I tell it to create books, and I got frustrated with it yesterday and put it aside, but today’s the day to figure out what’s going on. I think I’ll also read some more of the Clean Coder, I’ve fallen behind on the books we’re supposed to read.

I expect to learn that I’m probably forgetting something simple with the create method in my code. This feature also requires sorting, pagination and searching. I’ve worked some with sorting and searching, but never with paginating, so hopefully that won’t be too hard.
