Day 25 at MakerSquare.
Front-end: started mucking around with MVP - model, views, presenters - with our host of JS libraries. Conceptually, it seems similar to what we’ve seen in Rails. I think the next step to take will be getting a better understanding of the file structure and where to store what code.
Back-end: sending emails with Rails Action Mailer. It was interesting to see how this system used the MCV style of Rails to incorporate with the rest of the application. Also, there’s something really awesome about reaching into the world from one of our applications and interacting with some aspect of it.
Later: first presentation by one of the cohort members, Mateo. He gave us a rundown on the Instagram API, even making us a tutorial that’s on his Github account [here, by the way]. Squashed bugs with my mentor, Justin, after that. It’s good to have a second pair of eyes on a project.
