A little more Rails
I've gotten to spend a little more time with Rails this week — only an hour or so. But I think I'm starting to internalize the syntax. When David and I were pairing this weekend, he drove most of the time. Being behind the keyboard has gone a long way toward crystalizing some of the fundamentals in my head.
Also, we bought a copy of the Rails beta-book and as everyone promised, it is well worth the cost. Thus far, I haven't really tried to use it as anything other than a reference — I can't bear to read long sections of book on the screen. But it's been a most useful for finding specific answers. And I'm anxiously awaiting the hard-copy.
