Back to the basics
We started the day with our daily standup. Our coaches recognized that we are struggling to understand the issue we are working on due our current understanding of the rails framework. Our coach Emily suggested that we go back to the basics and to spend the day learning about rails. We both spent the day reviewing different aspects of the Rails framework. We looked at how the MVC structure in rails works, generated controllers, and looked at routes.
It was important to learn how to generate models and to underrstand how to create tables and columns in the migration file. The migration files in the Exercism codebase make more sense now.
The important lesson for today was that sometimes you need a pause. Reviewing the basics was helpful to take a step back and gain some more understanding. Next week we will come back to our issue with a fresh perspective.
