  1. Ugghhh, it seems so hard to get right(( To be frank, I've known Scala a little, in order to do some bugfix job for the restaurant's site I'm working at, but I literally have no clue about how all that works for sure. And, how you may have guessed already, it's quite impossible thing to support website if you're bad at backend-coding.. Glad that I've found the restaurant website builder that made me able to create another one website for my company using simple templates. In this fashion, it's as easy as to play with Lego :D
