This week was the first week of the “project weeks”, 3 weeks to go. In a group of 3 students we have to finish the project they give us.
In short, our project is a browser-based meal-application for a school.
They are using a very old DOS application right now and they really need an update.
Everybody works on the same project, using different languages and frameworks. The best implemantion will be used in the school. And I’m lucky: using Ruby On Rails.
After 1 week we already have most of the functionality and a layout finished.
It’s kind of getting used to Rails 2, more things have changed than I though. Also I stopped using Eclipse as my IDE and now just use gEdit and the commandline.
Why? It’s fast and I’m learning a whole lot more without an IDE helping me all the time. So far I haven’t even missed a visual debugger, hope it stays this way…
