Sublime Text 2 Time Savers: Cmd + t

In Sublime Text 2, Cmd + t will bring up a list of every file in the currently loaded project. When you start typing the filename you are searching for, sublime text will complete it for you and when you click enter, the friggen file opens! No more searching through the mess on your navigation pane or open tabs anymore. Booyah!

Class with “belongs_to” should have the foreign key.

The Google API and OAuth2

Spent the afternoon figuring out how to use the Google API and OAuth2 with a simple Sinatra application that displays a user’s name and Google profile image. Couldn’t have done it without the following 2 links as a reference:

  2. https://developers.google.com/oauthplayground/

Enjoy!

Damn You, Tumblr

I added Dev Bootcamp tags to some of my older posts and now everything is out of order. Doh.

Anyways, here’s a screenshot of the result of me playing around with the Twitter API today. Good times.

Trello

Worked on a group project this weekend and we used Trello (https://trello.com/) as a project management tool. I’d recommend it to anyone organizing anything with a group.

Note: Will hopefully have v. 1.0 of our group project pushed to Heroku tomorrow evening. Still have a small bug that we’d like to fix before pushing it.

Javawhatevahs vs. The Sleep Monster in The Matrix

Just realized that I should have created this new Tumblr with a different email account. Whenever I like or reblog people’s things it links to my Africa blog which I don’t use anymore. Oh wells. As one of my great friends, Mark (R.I.P.), used to say, JAVAWHATEVAHS. Why so serious? Nahmean? Chillax. Weaksauce. Taco sauce. Damn, I am so frikken tired right now.

As for what happened today at Dev Bootcamp….

Ryan and I made a M.V.P. (minimum viable product) a.k.a. a blob of code that works without much features Mario Kart JS/Sinatra game. No link for you guys on this one. hahaha. My brain was not functioning at all as a result of 5 hours of sleep last night. Everyone keeps saying that sleep is really important during DBC. I find it hard to get more than 6 hours of sleep a night because there’s just so much stuff to learn. Resources are endless with the interwebs these days. Here’s a link I found tonight from Rewardli for a free month of Treehouse membership.

Just set a Google Calendar reminder to cancel your membership before the month is up if you can’t afford the monthly membership.

Oh and I didn’t get around to posting the FlashDeck app we made this weekend yet. Hopefully, we’ll get it up soon. If not. oh wells. JAVAWHATEVAHS.
