9h Tonight I’m whooped and I’m going to try something new. I’m going to bed early in the hopes of waking up early and cranking out some work with a refreshed mind. Lately I’ve been really brain dead so late at night that it’s been a struggle to stay awake, let alone learn efficiently.
Today we did all sorts of JOINS in postgres, and tonight I started on ActiveRecord. It feels doable. I’m not stoked on learning yet another syntax of how to read a database, but I’ll get over it. I think 5 weeks in is too soon to get jaded!
In between projects today I worked on my craigslist scraper app a little bit. I have had fun with that. I’m currently working on auto complete for the city name and then showing a bunch of checkboxes for citied nearby. I have the bones of most of it already done. I need to wire up the initial auto fill and then make an iterator to display all of the nearby cities and make radio buttons for them all! I guess I should also probably have a soft limit or else I will get banned from cl!!’
