…own. For one, you'll learn a lot faster if you try it yourself first ( Google and StackOverflow are your friends). This also makes your experienced co-workers feel more helpful and confident you'll put their advice to good use the next time you run into a similar problem.

2. Make it easy for people to help you

It can be really hard to articulate what it is you're confused about, when you may not even have the vocabulary to describe the topic. Here's a template that I like …

…spent some time building a plugin that simulates the question and answer format you see on sites like StackOverflow. If you're looking to integrate the concept of a "correct post" into your Discourse instance, check out my Solved Button plugin .

Throughout it all, I was thankful to have the expertise of New Relic software engineer David Celis to turn to, particularly for the authentication system integration. David's made a number of amazing sites …

Following railstutorial again, to strengthen my rails basic and pick up new shiny things in rails 4.

Getting sublime to run test directly is quite awesome, I mean you just need to highlight part of the test you wish to run, cmd + shift + R, boom you got your test result, all without needing to leave the comfort of sublime. Sweet.

On the next day though, suddenly it refuse to run, complaining

/ bin / sh: rspec: command not found

…because I spend a lot of my time helping thousands of people through IM one-to-one. I've tried StackOverflow but didn't enjoy the medium. I'm writing an open-source book in my very little spare time. I've written a lot of open-source code and contributed to non-profit projects too, some very popular.
