    I learned to appreciate system tests and test-driven development a bit more today 😅

    Writing tests before figuring out what is wrong saved me a bit of headache today.

    I've been struggling with rails routes a bit today so learned a bit more about different syntax options here.

    When in doubt - consult the documentation! 😅

    Continue learning Python, I'm watching Learn Python - Full Course for Beginners [Tutorial] which explains some core concepts.

    Today is Sunday so I only watched a small part of it (Functions and Return statements) :)

    Learning Python after Ruby is quite nice, the syntax and general logic are pretty similar.
    Indentation is very important in Python though as there's no end keyword to end the function.
    And Ruby is more laid back in other things and favors omitting braces when not strictly required.

    Python:
    def say_hi():
      print("hi")

    Ruby:
    def say_hi
      puts "hi"
    end

    I learned about Tuples in Python today, which basically are immutable Lists (Arrays).

    Interesting to see how different languages approach the same concepts. In Ruby, you can use freeze to make an object immutable, and in Python, you have to use another type.

    I might be spoiled by working with Ruby & Rails exclusively in the back-end for the last couple of years but for now, I prefer the Ruby way 😜

    Today I learned that you can chain the parameters in URL with ";" instead of "&".

    I still prefer "&" though!

    Learned a bit more today about rails routing constraints. There's so much more to them than meets the eye! 👀

    Learned more about Rails relationships today. Active Record Associations are super cool but confusing sometimes.


    Congrats on the launch, Learning Story 🎉
