Good preparation for interview

For some time I do interviews. I’m not an HR person. I’m developer. I do technical interviews for my company. My responsibility is to check how experienced is the person which apply for a job. How this person fit to our team from technical and personal point of view. This process is not about being perfect. It’s more about being honest. Finally team and candidate should be able to work together. Today I would like to tell a little bit about what I expect from person to interview. I would like to show my point of view on this kind...

Sublime Text Editor

Sublime Text Editor

I think almost every programmer has his own favorite text editor. Some people like Vim, some people like Notepad++ and I love Sublime Text. There are lots of useful shortcuts, snippets, and plugins that allow me, in a fast and easy way, to work with code or simple text.

Quick overview Ruby each_with_object method

I worked in last a few days with each_with_object method. Every time when I would like to use some method in Ruby I try read documentation one more time and I look on some example of usage. This time I went through APIdock and I noticed that in theirs documentation is missing one very nice example of usage each_with_object method. I tried to add this missing part there, but without success. In meantime when I’m waiting for message from APIdoc support I decided to write short note here about this.

Web Summit Lisbon 2016

It took me some time from last post. So many things happened: events, workshops, travel. But I’m back! Today I would like to share my thoughts about Web Summit. This is big conference (exhibition for startups). I was on this conference once in Dublin and now in Lisbon. I decided to come because as a Woman in Tech I got free ticket. Maybe because of that I should not talk about what I don’t like. On the other hand I think when no one talks about disadvantage, conference can not be better next time. Too big for me In Ruby...

Rails Girls Cieszyn (15 – 16 October 2016)

Rails Girls Poznań (02 – 03 September 2016)

Summer is almost gone and I’m back on Rails Girls journey. This time I went to Rails Girls Poznań. And to be honest, the weather during this workshop was so nice, like it was still summer even in September. Poznań is a very special place for me. If you don’t know yet, here was my first Rails Girls event and I was a participant back then. I wrote an article Rails Girls Rules about my first experience with Rails Girls initiative. It was in 2013. How fast the time flies, don’t you think? This year I was already on Rails...

Leaflet - Introduction to maps

I’m back on track. This time I would like to talk with you about maps. How easy we can work with maps nowadays. To be able to use maps on my website I will be using: Leaflet - JavaScript library for interactive maps Maps tiles Ruby on Rails (not required but you need to have at least some html file) So first things first. What are they maps tiles? In simple words they are small square images, which show a map. They are served in packages. So on our website we see many of them. How we can get tiles?...

Rails Girls Łódź (16 – 17 June 2016)

I’m really a Rails Girls freak! After a weekend with Rails Girls Warsaw, I went to the next workshops. This time, I was in Łódź on the third edition of Rails Girls Łódź. I loved the atmosphere of this workshop. It is always a pleasure for me to share my knowledge and to see that other women want to try new things.
