Stuck on Rails? We've got you covered ;)
Lately, we've been delving deeper and deeper into the wonderful world of Ruby through codecadamy and one thing that came to mind was "How do I keep up with all the syntax? How can I remember them all?" So, I figured - let's create an app.
Transitioning from one programming language to another, specifically Java to Ruby, getting used to the syntax of a different language and trying to remember them all during implementation can get a bit confusing. There's a lot of having to scroll back to the previous lessons and examples so that you can figure out what to do in the current lesson. So, what can we do to help us out? We can create a mobile app for references.
The application should list various examples of different methods, syntax, formats, etc., in Ruby in a form of flash cards or index cards that will help the user understand the language or give them a refresher on a certain topic. It also should be available offline.
The benefits of having this mobile app is that it'll help those who are still in "training wheels" quickly access references to certain problems we encounter on our journey to mastering the Ruby language; especially around the time for exams.
