    Week 9 Finance project: Once tables created, should one start with defining Register route?
    byu/DigitalSplendid incs50


    The choice of which route to define and code first, whether it’s the Register route or other routes like index and buy, is not strictly arbitrary. While it’s technically possible to define and code routes in any order, there are several factors to consider when deciding the order in which to implement them:

    1. Logical Flow: It’s generally a good idea to follow a logical flow in your application’s development. In the case of a finance project like CS50x, it makes sense to start with the Register route if user registration is a prerequisite for other functionalities, such as buying stocks or accessing the user’s portfolio.
    2. Dependencies: Consider the dependencies between different routes and functionalities. If certain routes or functionalities depend on others being implemented first, it might make sense to prioritize those dependencies.

    3. User Experience: Think about the user’s journey through your application. What is the first action a user would typically take? Starting with user registration can provide a smooth onboarding experience for users.

    4. Testing: Implementing routes incrementally and sequentially can make testing and debugging easier. It allows you to focus on smaller portions of code at a time and verify that each part works as expected before moving on to the next.

    5. Clarity and Readability: While it’s technically possible to define routes in any order, organizing your code sequentially can improve clarity and readability, especially for anyone else who may be reviewing or working on the code.

    Given these considerations, it’s often advised to start with defining and coding routes in a logical sequence that aligns with the user’s journey and the dependencies between different functionalities. However, ultimately, the choice depends on your project’s specific requirements and your personal preference as a developer. If you have a strong reason to prioritize certain routes over others, you can certainly adjust the order accordingly.
