Rails Girls Warsaw (11 - 12 June 2016)

It is time to start the new Rails Girls season! My first Rails Girls event, this year, was in Warsaw. Warsaw is a very special place for me. Here I was a mentor for a first time. Here I fell in love with Rails Girls even more. It was in 2014. At that time, I was very nervous to be a mentor. After workshops I wrote down all my thoughts about that. You can read them in article Rails Girls welcome back!. This year organizers, as always, surprised us with a beautiful place for a workshop and with new ideas...

Working remote

Working remote

For me, there are two types of remote work. Synchronic and asynchronic remote work. Synchronic remote work is work from different places but in the same time. For example I’m working from 9am to 5pm in Europe time zone. Second one - asynchronic remote work is when you are working from different places and in different times. So, it is possible to don’t have chance to talk with anyone through all day work.

Git Rebase

When you are starting your adventure with git, it’s hard to know everything from the beginning. This is normal that you do small steps and discover new features on the way. Today, I have a very nice git feature for you. It will allow you to have a better structure and order of your commits. This is very useful especially when you work in a team. I will show you how to use git rebase. This is the third article in the git series, so if you want to know more about basics of git usage, go to my previous...

Git - basics

Git is a very important tool in a programmer toolbox. It is one of the version-control systems. Because git has a lot of very cool and useful features, it is also the most common one.

Last time, I talked about what is git? and why as programmers we should use it daily. Now, I will talk about: How to create the first git repository? How to configure git locally...

Lambdas in Ruby

I had situation where I worked with many different (but in some way similar) collections in Ruby. This collections had very similar methods to search elements by name. In this particular example I decided to use lambda. Let me show you how this looks like. Code which I get looks like this: @first_collection.select do |activity| activity.name == 'name' end This is not bad code but in others places I had similar things. Collections (I mean arrays) and names were only changes. Like this: @second_collection.select do |activity| activity.name == 'name1' || activity.name == 'name2' end So I decided to use lambda....

What is git?

If you are interested in IT or you are already a programmer, you should hear the name Git at least a couple of times. Maybe even more. This tool is common to many teams no matter what programming language they use. This is the base and it is good to know git. Today, I would like to start a short series about Git basics. On the Internet, you can find many articles and tutorials about how to use git. I would focus more on what is the purpose of using git and how it works. In this article, I will...

Coderetreat 2015 Cracow

Coderetreat 2015 Cracow

In last Saturday I was on Global Day of Coderetreat in Krakow. Coderetreat is one day in year when programmers focus not on delivery new functionality but focus on good code quality. I think this is very important to stop for a moment and think how to be better programmer. And Coderetreat is that moment.
