This is a great little tip for any software developer, regardless of your programming language of choice. It's these subtle things that can raise you up regular programmer to coding superstar. When sending URLs that link to files on github you may want to reference a specific line number or block of code. The people receiving your code snippets will appreciate these nice highlights, and (subconsciously or not) they'll be thinking, "damn, he's good".
I was recently on a chairlift talking to my uncle who is a technology exec at a finance company in New York, and he told me that one way they vet people is by looking at their Stack Overflow score. I've landed on Stack Overflow pages many times in the past, but successfully finding and answering questions takes putting in a decent amount of effort and requires knowledge about the problem domain (sometimes, a lot of knowledge about it!). Well, in an effort to selfishly increase my own fame and unselfishly help other struggling devs I've recently began to really try to look for questions that I can answer and provide a solid answer for. I've learned some tips to make the search faster, weed out the fluff, and make it much easier to find those low-hanging fruits. The tip I'll share here is to strategically search for Stack Overflow questions. Enjoy! :)
I had a subscription for egghead.io back when I started learning AngularJs. It's a great site for bite-sized videos on specific issues and development things. This particular video is free, and it's a great little demo for getting the "new" Angular router up and running
I was just derping around on SoundCloud yesterday listening to music while I worked. Because I had cucumber acceptance tests on my mind from my open feature files (also I was eating a salad with cucumber haha) my fingers for some reason decided to type "cucumber" into the search box.
