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.
