Time away from Ruby
While all of this time did not go to waste, I didn't realize how quickly I could forget writing an if statement in Ruby did not require parentheses around the conditional statement or there are no curly braces around the block of code to run within the statement. I remember hearing a phrase similar to (Ruby Sugar) when I was in my program and I realize that there is a lot of truth behind this phrase as Ruby is a very friendly language.
I made this realization when I had to make a quick pivot for a technical interview where the email stated I should have Ruby on Rails installed on my computer. I jump into Codewars and try to work out a simple problem only to realize every time I run the code there is an issue with my syntax. I had completed a Udemy course on it to which I went back to watch a few lessons on 2X speed as I had a day to pick up as much as I could.
