Week Five and Six (...aaand Seven, Eight, and Nine): Wherein Sean Learns Blogging is Hard
Well, people, the wheels fell off the whole blogging thing pretty quick. This is pretty much the fourth blog of mine that’s started…feeble and fizzled after a few posts. Content marketer, I am not.
Still, onward! Since I last wrote, there’ve been a billion things going on: hackathons, Startup Weekend, and Oktoberfest. Serious business. But it hasn’t all been fun and games! I’ve learned a huge amount. Let’s take a look:
- Basic Git is actually pretty clear now. I continue to make git/get jokes, to everyone’s chagrin.
- Scaffolding. Boom. Very glad I know the nuts and bolts behind it, though.
- Model association has_many practical uses.
- User model! Session model! Sign up and log in! You get an account, YOU get an account, and YOU GET AN ACCOUNT!
More than the individual topic, though, I continue to be really blown away by how much I can understand by just reading a codebase. I’ve also started to be able to troubleshoot my way outta corners; the first time I steered myself back on course, I audibly w00ted.
