I really wish I was able to get farther in one day, but I think it’s good enough that I went from idea to deployed app. On retrospective I wasted too much time figuring out formtastic. I don’t regret doing it because it was in my TODO list and in the long run it should make me more productive, but in the short run maybe I should have used the good old forms.

The other two big waste of times was CSS and tables and an issue with the Ruby OpenID gem. Both problems I encountered before and both times I gave up trying to solve them and moved on. I should have moved on again this time; but instead I figured them out.

The application is at http://sano.pupeno.com. Please don’t break it ;) Remember to log in and if you add data I’ll be grateful as it’ll make my migrations more realistic:


I’m done for today.
