It.πŸ‘ Has.πŸ‘ Been.πŸ‘ A.πŸ‘ Week.πŸ‘

Given that this week has been strenuous and stressful for everyone, I wanted to give my general impressions on each day that I experienced throughout this specific project creation.

Day 1 - Monday, January 4, 2021

Alright, It's another day 1 of project week, we're gonna kick some butt today! Was able to set up most of the backend, and create the repos for which the project will be pushed to in my github.

Project title: Species Petting Zoo
Purpose of app: To allow an individual log a Genus and Species of animals they are familiar with or would like to research at a later time.

Day 2 - Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Began putting together the structure of the backend defining what the two models I would be using (Genus & Species) and started to question if Rails would like it both of these words technically are singular and plural in their original spelling.

Much, Much Later...

NOPE! Rails doesn't like Genus or Species so I deleted it all, and regenerated the same project, connected it to the same repo using Category and Animal instead. For your reference.

const Genus = new Category(data)
const Species = new Animal(data)

Day 3 - Wednesday, January 6, 2021

Everything is starting to work with the frontend/backend code I'm inserting according to lectures I have been watching from last couple wee...

Day 5 - Friday, January 8, 2021

Not gonna lie, this last day it was filled with a lot of panic, a lot of self doubt, but then a realization of knowing that "This new path I'm taking does not mean I have to do it alone." And because of that, both Nancy Noyes and Leah Schlackman get shoutouts for helping debug and getting the delete buttons to work in order to finalize and submit this project ON. TIME. Enjoy!
