The User Model4:57 with Kenneth Love
Nearly every good web app needs a way to represent a user, so we need to create our `User` model. We'll hold onto just a few fields so we can get people in and using our app as easily as possible.
order_by can take one or more fields to order records by by default. Each field can also have a
- at the beginning to mark it as being sorted in descending order.
So why can't we do
order_by = ('joined_at', 'desc')? Because each member of the
order_by tuple is the name of a field, so that would be telling our model to order by the
'joined_at' field and the
'desc' field, which doesn't exist.
order_by is a tuple (you can use a list if you want), we have to include that trailing comma if there's only one tuple member.
