Product: Learning from Lens Protocol and Farcaster. Code: Models and Migrations
In this episode of Ventures, I (https://www.linkedin.com/in/wclittle) continue our Product and Code series to talk about Web3 protocol design and Ruby on Rails model/migration construction. I bring up the protocols Farcaster and Lens as examples for product managers to be aware of and learn from when approaching how to build value for the modern web. I also detail how to create a User model in Ruby on Rails, its associated “migration” file, and examples from the Rails Console how to create a user to store in the database.
