Day 34

We spent the day learning about Rails routing and controllers. We came to the conclusion that if you can't figure out what something is, ask yourself 'Could it be a gem?' It was a good lesson learned. We focused on separate learning tasks today and tomorrow we will teach each other, since we learn best by teaching.

Today we reflected a bit on how far we have come. It wasn't too long ago that we thought that looking up details about a language or framework was 'cheating', because real programmers 'knew' all the answers. When we accepted that it was okay, we sought answers in Stack Overflow and other online Q&A sites. Now, we have shifted towards reading the documentation. It is a small, but important shift in our relationship to programming and sources of information.
