…conflicts and dependency hells can be very time-consuming and annoying, too. Ruby-on-Rails programs for example need the right combination of Ruby Version (for example Ruby 1.8.7 or 1.9.2), the right Ruby-On-Rails Version (2.3.8 or 3.2), and the right RubyGems Version (say 1.3.5).

Recent update to Netzke (the framework that helps you build ExtJS/ Ruby-on-Rails applications) introduces support for FamFamFam Silk icons . All you have to do is download the icons and put them into your public/images/icons folder (so that the icons are accessible via http://yourhost.com/images/icons ) - the next time you restart your Rails application, Netzke will detect the icons and start using them.

…topics you can pursue, but mentors can help prioritize them. (My personal goal: to actually build a Rails app of my own.)

Helping your team

As a junior dev, it's natural to be asking yourself: how can I contribute to my team when I still need so much help? Something to remember is that in a world where there aren't enough developers* for all the developer jobs out there, it's not necessarily a choice between slow (junior) and fast (senior)...it's a choice between having …
