Project Social: Report 1


Time for the weekly update for Project Social.

Last Week
Last week I got to know Ruby on Rails, the programming language + platform that will be used when making the app.

I've also jotted down some ideas for some features for the app, which I think are cool to have if I get the time for them.

This part is what I find to be the most arduous. To research about the various parts of another language and to know how to use them best takes time. However I do feel that I know how to handle Ruby better now than what I did a week ago (but I wouldn't go calling me an expert on this just yet).

This Week
And as for this week I will look into at how to make a Facebook app. So yeah, not much going on for these first weeks, but I gotta learn to crawl before I can run.

As with the previous week, this is going to take some time and energy for research. I will, however, make a dummy app as I go along, so it's not all just reading (yay). I do realize, though, that it is one of the most necessary parts in order to get this project done right, so I will endure.

That's it for now, see you next week!
