Ruby on Rails Best Coding Practices Slide Show and Gem

Posted on the November 17th, 2009 under Ruby on Rails by

When browsing around today I saw quite a few sites talking about the Rails Best Practices presentation / talk that ihower did at the Kungfu RailsConf. Check it below, it really covers a lot of basic tips on how to clean up your code and follow some better coding practices.

Someone just released a gem that will analyze your code and check for “Best Practices” –  seems promising. Check it out at GitHub here: http://github.com/flyerhzm/rails_best_practices

Stairs are now done, finally!

These stairs are finally done.  First was the endless sanding, then the staining and polyurethane.  I put off painting the risers and sides because its a nightmare to prep, plus I had other projects from “The List” to get done.  I went through a roll of tape just getting everything ready before painting.  Primed with a good primer, then hit it with a semi gloss white from Benjamin moore.  (I went with the semi gloss because of durability, I used this on all my moldings and doors)

Anyways, here are some pics.  The flash from the camera makes it seem more shiny then it actually is, I think it came out pretty good.

Pics of new Fence, Front Door, and Entry Way…

Figured I’d update the old blog with a few house updates.  We had a new door put in, then me and my father-in-law tiled our entry way.  I also just had a fence put in.
