An ocean of noise

Code Journal #2

Today I:

  • Added the ability to automatically discharge patients during WSP sync.
  • Started visually updating the site using twitter-bootstrap.
  • Updated the notification template text to send the correct time for the Central Time Zone.

Today I Learned:

  • Always call self.(attribute or method) to disambiguate in the body of a method definition.
  • Exceptions thrown in a seperate Thread will get swallowed.
  • Rails.logger messages in a seperate Thread will get swallowed.
  • Paperclip saves metadata on the geometry of an image but only for predefined styles.

Next time I will:

  • Write more tests.
  • Add functionality to restore to active, a recently discharged patient.
  • Continue to improve the visual design and UX of the site.
  • Add Ziptastic.
