We had a long coaching session today where each explanation form our coach led to more questions which led to yet more questions. With the list of subjects covered growing longer and longer, we nearly lost track of the first question which led us down the rabbit hole. We learned when questions lead astray like this it can be called 'yak shaving'! Topics we covered include:

reviewing array.pop
learning about ruby web servers and frameworks and about the interact with the use of Rack
reviewing telnet
learned what factorial is
talked about recursion
Finally, we had an extensive session on regular expression, which we will be using to the field where users type a SoundCloud url, which will then be converted to a SoundCloud track-id!

This evening we have our weekly SoundDrop team meeting.

  • we added a text fielt so the user could create a sounddrop by adding a random soundcloud url
  • adding text field and verification that the input is really a soundcloud url (regular expression)
  • ask Soundcloud API what the track id is
  • put it into params drop/track id
