I gave a talk in April on how I built an app using React.js with a Ruby on Rails JSON backend. The slides are below. If I were to build the thing over again I’d probably forego rake altogether for npm.

Here’s a quick solution adding a specific user (aka role) in Postgres.
Here’s a small collection of links for developers looking to learn.
I recently came across a page with lots of links to txt files. I got frustrated when I wanted to look up something in these files but couldn’t because I’d have to download each one by one.
This month has been hectic.
I have a directory where I’m storing all my solution to nodeschool.io courses.

in each folder. To ignore a directory recursively you can use the following
So I haven’t been able to work on a solid blog post on any specific technology. I’d like my articles to be a lot like the articles you see on nettuts or sitepoint, just haven’t found tech I’m super passionate about like that this month.

Today I was trying to upgrade all my brew kegs with
brew upgrade. But it trips up on libiconv.
You might try like I did and call brew with sudo but you get this message
