   - interest especially because of reduced classroom hours in the fall

* peer review process summary
  - generate video?
  - generate text
  - doing it in live system will introduce something that another student will be asked to grade ... but I can delete?

* Sinatra assignment walkthrough http://youtu.be/fZqP9mbK73o

Sam's note on sinatra
 
* too wordy?
* we ask students to clone, but then we ask them to create a new empty dir FIXED
* consistent placement of commands you should run on their own line?
* can self check answers be popup:

<details>
  <summary>Show/Hide me</summary>
  <p>Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas.</p>
</details>

* update to show students how to run subsets of tests rather than relying on auto test
* According to the tests in this `describe` block, what
instance variables is a HangpersonGame expected to have? <-- can we assume that a getter implies the presence of an instance variable

* To move on to next spec block - have to remove pending from two places ...

* can we replace autotest and pending with rspec code to run subsets of tests?

* define what it means for a guess to be "valid" or not - my guess so far is it is that it's a real letter that has not yet been guessed

* "Self-check: @game in this context is an instance variable of what class? (Careful-- tricky!)" seems poorly worded "Of which class is @game an instance variable"

* rerun "rackup -p $PORT -o $IP" --> might need -- DONE

* issue of guess being both making a guess and determining the validity of that guess

class Hangperson
  def guess(letter) 
     ...
  end
  def last_guess_valid?
     ...
  end
end
