I've written a few things

If you have any comments or suggestions — get in touch!

  • Profile Images With Active Storage

    I was surprised how simple it was to implement Active Storage just following the guide from Rails Guides. This is how I added profile images to Speakers Live in 6 easy steps!

  • Nested Forms

    Nested resources are a powerful tool and Rails has made it easy to deal with doing this directly in your usual form, well, format…

  • Do I truly want to become a manager?

    After reading “Do I truly want to become a manager?” by @clairejlew, I decided that I would actual consider and answer these questions. Some questions are difficult to answer as a non-manager, but I’ve tried to answer them the best I can.

  • Public Objects With Google Cloud

    Google doesn’t allow you to make a directory public. Who knows why? Please tell me. Maybe it’s obvious and I just missed it all. Their example makes the entire bucket public, which we really don’t want!
