Working on this project was an incredibly rewarding experience that opened my eyes to the incredible amount of information I have learned from this course. It was also a reminder of how much there still is to learn. The project requirements are certainly met, but I still would like to work on the front end more to make the interface more user friendly. Below I outline what the app is capable of and some struggles I faced along the way.
As I progress through the curriculum I am becoming more and more interested in what is happening under the hood of our favorite frameworks and gems. I came across Rake in the ORM and Active Record portion of the course and decided to make a guide to help myself better understand Rake and how it makes important gems, such as Active Record work.
