comment Is fewer lines of code always better?
I must admit that there is nothing more exciting in refractoring then reducing lines of code. I once brought down code from 1800 lines to 300 and intense delight I felt can't be described. :)

The best advice will be not to follow any advice. DO what you feel right. Eventually, as you will start dealing with more complexity you will exactly understand what you are doing wrong.

comment How does a competition like Rails Rumble Work?
Yeah, but this particular competition didn't seem to have any theme thing associated with it. If a team could design such apps in 48hrs, then seriously I think I really lag behind in such Extreme Programmers. :)
