    So I’m a front end dev, I have a side project idea and I am looking to pick up a new skill.

    I want to build a theatre resource (Sort of like a simple IMDB).

    A database of Theatre Companies, Shows and Actors and have them all interconnected.
    Eg. This actor was in these shows. This show was done by this company with these actors etc.
    I also want people to be able to register to be able to edit / update their own profiles or their shows etc.

    It’s a side project with no imminent deadline so I was thinking it would be a good opportunity to learn Ruby on Rails while completing the project.

    Thanks for any advice
