During this week, my biggest challenge during the project was with Ruby's syntax and understanding how the Rails database system worked.
Ruby Syntax Problems
For instance, I would often write "<%= %>" without the "=" and end up not displaying what I want. Or I would misplace a gem in the inside of a "do...end" loop and end up having the gems not working properly. I think over the next week, I will spend some time on learning Ruby's syntax to better familiarize myself with how these codes work.
When to use "rails g model XXX" and how to establish relationships betwen various resources in the database is something I have yet to understand fully. I think only by doing more projects seeing more examples would I be able to get a better grasp of how these complex relationships worked in the Rails tree.
