Having difficulties knowing where to start


I’ll start by saying I’m pretty new to ROR… I’m trying to build an app with this API and have come to a pretty hefty road block. I’ve installed the gem, looked up and down the documentation and guides, I have my sandbox initialized, and found a video that seemed to be from the v1 Dwolla API where they had code inside a dwolla.rb file (inside config/initializers I think?) - and I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing.

I’m unaware of how to create customers, I don’t know anything about curl and how it relates to ruby… and am I supposed to model my users in my app specifically like the customers in the API (firstName and lastName separate, type, status, etc.) or does that not matter?

Any insight is much appreciated.
