Help with German genders

I’m taking German and was wondering if there were any tricks to the genders of nouns or if it’s just memorization? I noticed a few patterns, e.g. nouns ending in -e tended to be feminine, nouns ending in other vowels tended to be neuter, nouns ending in -er were often masculine … are there any other tricks like this?
