The challenge on Wednesday for me were two things:
- Pairing with a new partner, who was more experience than me and therefore had a better and quicker grasp of the concepts we’ve been introduced to.
- Realising how I rushed through RSPEC/documentation the day before and not actually understanding it.
So most of the day I felt like even though we were pairing, and changing who was typing, I didn’t do as much thinking of my own as I would have liked. I probably should have stopped my partner more and just take the time to re-read the documentation, have a few more examples etc. That being said, he was very good as making his thoughts clear and explaining the processes, which was definitely very valuable.
I still felt a bit unsatisfied as I felt way behind my pair (not gonna lie: not an amazing feeling).
So Wednesday evening, after a quick half pint in the Maker’s local and a cheeky Japanese at home, I sat down and started re-reading rspec documentation.
RSPEC I WILL GET YOU!
