This e-commerce project is my first real experience with Rails. I have found navigating the growing file structure of our application to be one of the consistently slow parts of my work flow. Once I get used to the function/purpose/responsibility of all of these app files, I will be able to spend less time figuring out where I need to be in my app structure and more time developing solutions to the problems at hand. That being said, I feel like I am getting the hang of it.
My current group is great. We have been experimenting with a triple pairing process and with doing pairing pretty much 100% of the time. I know that not all companies function like this, but it has been a fun learning experience and just a great way to build camaraderie with my classmates. There is a risk with triple pairing that one person would be twiddling his or her thumbs, disengaged with the process. That has, fortunately, not been the case with our group.comments powered by Disqus
