Make it real

Ideas are cheap. Make a prototype, sketch a CLI session, draw a wireframe. Discuss around concrete examples, not hand-waving abstractions. Don't say you did something, provide a URL that proves it.

Ship it

Nothing is real until it's being used by a real user. This doesn't mean you make a prototype in the morning and blog about it in the evening. It means you find one person you believe your product will help and try to get them to use it.

Do it with style

DynamoDB on Travis-CI

DynamoDB on Travis-CI

Leverage docker-compose to boot up the service and set a DYNAMODB_URL as an Env var. As described in the AWS Ruby SDK we can pass in a custom endpoint to the client.

client = ENV['DYNAMODB_URL'])
class Registration
# Make this model play nice with `form_for`. Gives us validations, initialize, etc
include ActiveModel::Model
# Accessors for the fields we are exposing in the form
attr_accessor :email, :password, :zip
# This is an implementation detail of our authentication (Clearance). It's ultimately going to
# sign this object in and that process expects a user object that has these fields available
delegate :remember_token, :id, to: user
