@gSchool Week 9

You won’t hear it from me often, but the week flew by at gSchool. Focus was largely on building team-based CRUD Rails apps to manage media items (pictures as well as YouTube & Vimeo videos). A main intent was to acclimate us to work on larger teams. Our group of six coordinated the splitting of duties to avoid GitHub merge conflicts that occur when making changes incompatible with changes submitted by teammates. By and large, our team managed to avoid all but a couple conflicts, so we were very satisfied with the coordination efforts. A large reason for the success was early implementation of application-wide CSS styles that acted as a template for individual pages (thank you, ). A secondary goal of the project was to help us feel comfortable going forward working with other developers in the same codebase.

For those curious about gSchool projects, I’ll post a link so this week’s efforts can be viewed on Heroku as well as GitHub:

Tomorrow starts with an early morning study group in Denver so I’ll get some sleep. Likely next week, I’ll feel ready to post a link to show early progress on my first individual Rails portfolio project.
