Models are descriptions of things. They help us work out what we want to build.

What models would help build the Gamerz IS? A page hierarchy would help. That’s a list of the pages and subpages, like we did for Adopt-a-Dog. Your look-and-feel model, too.

The Gamerz IS has some new types of requirements, for structured data. Let’s add two more types of models:

  • Entities
  • Views

We’ll make an entity model for each content type. It will list the fields and their data types. Maybe we’ll rough out the data entry form, too.

We’ll also model the views we want. The fields on each one, and security restrictions, to start with. We’ll also add some more Good Stuff to make views more useful.

Onward! Ad victoriam!
