Bah! Another week lost to the blogosphere. Fortunately this time had valid reasons. Last week we spent working on our first projects in Rails. We learned some other things throughout the week as well, though I can’t entirely remember what they were it was such a jampacked week. I spent the first weekend essentially wire-framing, … More Week 5 and 6… halfway through!
So last week I unfortunately didn’t write a reflection.

This was really discouraging as all I’ve heard from everyone was that Ruby was the easiest … More Welcome to Ruby
I got really distracted this weekend reading about the origins of Ruby and Ruby on Rails.
