Week of August 15th-19th

  • Something I am struggling with this week scheduling jobs, and active records with the rails framework.

  • Something I learned this week, due to the rails framework and scaffolding you can’t just add ruby files, methods, or classes. This is due to the framework doing a lot of associations and other configurations unbeknownst to the user/dev.

  • Something I have gotten better at this week, troubleshooting random issues as I noticed it’s taking me far less time to research and solve problems than before.

  • Some specific strategies I use to get unstuck are, documentation, I spent lots of time this week blocked by the active jobs framework in ruby on rails. I am still reading up on it and the gems I can use to solve the cron style jobs I need to run for the ETL process.
