I have had a bit experience with HTML and CSS before, so I mainly focused on building a website, a usable prototype, which i started just two days ago, and got a thorough dosage of hackthon like intensity and excitement with very little sleep.

I learnt a lot about the potential of rails. Despite having gems available, the microblogging turns out to be a bit harder to build than I imagined, I had to use multiple customization, customized code, DB modification, and even a separate gem for the comments function. It took me around the entire journey of MVC for sure. Twitter isn't so easy to do after all. If I know JSON, life would have been better maybe.

That was fun
