This next week we’ll be turning back to Rails for a few days before starting work on our group projects. I’m excited about what comes next, for the opportunity to take all that we’ve learned and combine it into a coherent and engaging product. Creating a black box, in a sense, but knowing exactly what goes into it and how it works. I know the next few weeks will be tiring, frustrating and challenging, but its great to know that I’m building a new skill set and finally starting to create cool stuff.
Oh, also, in case you haven’t noticed, I changed the design theme of my blog. I realized that the other theme got to be a little clunky, and I didn’t quite master the responsiveness of it, so the dynamic card-flip animation that I implemented ended up being more of a hindrance to readers than a cool design element. I got some feedback on the design - some people thought the animation was nice, but more people found it unnecessary and distracting from the actual blog content. And in the end, you’ve got to give the users what they want!
