Delving into the Ruby on Rails curriculum, this project, ‘members only’ is centered on the authentication process.
The basic idea is to keep the author of the post a secret, unless the visitor is logged in. Once logged in, the visitor can see the author and even post their own message.
It was a great milestone in that I was able to sense how quickly my understanding of the various Rails ‘parts’ were to be properly used. I can say that the area that I need to work on the most is properly testing. I’m sure the projects going forward will allow me ample opportunity to refine that skill.
