Should I send you a message?
The answer is probably yes. You might want to contact me if you have questions about what I could do for you professionally. If you'd care to hang out personally.

Ruby on Rails: Frustration to Elation

Ruby on Rails: Frustration to Elation

It's been a few months that I've been toying with Ruby on Rails. And to be totally honest it's been very very frustrating. But I can't hold Ruby or Rails accountable for that. Most of it is just me.

It's really really nice. When you click on a particular section, it brings you right to it. Well, sure you could do that with your very own anchors, no big deal. But, as you update your content, the table of contents wouldn't automagically update.
