Always use :inverse_of to connect two models in a belongs_to/has_many relationship. When you have two models in a belongs_to/has_many relationship, you should always use the :inverse_of option to tell ActiveRecord that they're two sides of the same association. By setting this option, Rails can optimize object loading so forum and forum.posts[0]…

class Forum < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :posts, :inverse_of => :forum
class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :forum, :inverse_of => :posts

Intro to SQL Notes

#What are database tables, column, and rows? What's the purpose of each?

Table is a collection of columns and rows

Column is a particular datatype, named with lowercase_separated_with_underscores

Row is a collection of data elements in a table each represented by a column, synonym for record

#How's a database similar and different from a spreadsheet?
