Day 22 of MakerSquare. Friday is Tie Day.
Didn’t get into much Rails work today but, wow, I watched a lot of the new videos from Ruby Conf 2013. Key takeaways from those: leave cryptography to the experts; I’ll better understand garbage collection in the future; there’s a wrapper for git for users of Github [conveniently called hub]; running Ruby on robots looks both easy and fun; and programs like MKS rule.
Also learned more about using git to switch branches [translation: looked up a command in the excellent Bohemian notebook and practiced it a few times]. Other tool work included going nuts with installing packages in Sublime Text. One of them broke my favorite shortcut, which is jumping between open tabs with the command key and a number key. I did come across this tip, which I’ve been wondering about:
“You can type Ctrl+0 to focus on the side bar.
Then you’ll be able to move selection among files with arrow keys and to open the selected file hitting Enter, without touching the mouse.”
