Day Two at MakerSquare.
First full day of class.
Front end in the morning: Mostly stretching the HTML/CSS muscles and practicing pair programming. Realized that float:left and float:right size the element down to the width of the child element - light bulb!
Starting to scratch the surface of best practices, from using “-u” in the initial git push to writing in the present tense for git messages. And, enjoyably, making the Sublime Text experience even more awesome by tweaking settings and learning shortcuts.
Back end in the afternoon: Mostly Ruby review, although at one point I had an existential ruby question. “I see that the each method returns the unmodified array, but why does it do that? What is its reason for existing?” Got some solid responses on how .each works, but I may need to do some more digging on this.
Second day of bike commuting in a couple of years. Nice to get out and spin. Might need to start doing yoga to stay loose.
