Why subscribe?

Developing with Ruby on Rails is a newsletter that I aim to publish 2-3x weekly, based on what I’ve been programming that week. It’s a way for me to share some of the knowledge with my future self (who tends to forget things) and with others.

If you’re like me, you use Stack Overflow and Google to find the answers that you need. Sometimes, however, I’m not able to find the answer or the solution that’s presented doesn’t quite fit.

In these cases, I typically work away at a problem for hours — or even days.

I’m usually successful in solving my problem, but I rarely document the solution. Until now.

I hope to share with my fellow developers which problems I’ve faced, and how I’ve approached in solving them.
