CS50 Web - Project 2

Image description
Second project with Django down ✅ This time around, I was tasked with building an auctions site where users could create listings, close listings, add to watchlist, bid on listings, and add comments, which was definitely a handful. I was initially pretty doubtful whether or not I'd be able to complete this since I've never done a full stack project with so many functionalities before, but I did it so yay.

Working with in Django has taught me the importance of separating functionalities, the more distinct the better. For example, originally I had the bidding functionality and the displaying bids both in the same function, but then after I separated them, Django got more clear on what each of them is supposed to do. One thing for one function at a time.

I also learned more about databases from Django models and what foreign key, one-to-one relationship, and many-to-many relationship means.

I'm really liking how hands-off these CS50 projects are so far. They don't tell you how to do something but give you what you need to do, which almost mimics real life.
