last day of hacker news clone. worked on exercises in the morning (per shereef’s orders) and learned a bit. spent the afternoon not as productive as i would have liked, but finished up some good stuff on the the hn clone. phil and i paired most of the time, which i liked. we spent some quality time with twitter bootstrap getting the styling better, and refactored some of the polymorphism phil implemented for comments. it was funny - once i got into his code, i realized that his implementation was actually pretty similar to mine on votes. there was some duplicate code i factored out, and started to remove some of the custom redirecting phil had done in favor of rails built-in methods, and then phil accidentally turned the computer off and we called it quits.
i spent some time thinking about how different what i’m doing now is from what i was doing in week 2. very hard to remember how i was coding then. i really want to go back and put together a couple of those apps again to see the differences.
