But who'd like to learn during the weekend... Relax, chill, rest a little. And brace yourself! Rails Tutorial is coming!
Do you know what fat cats like twitter (in its early days), yellow pages, basecamp, hulu, shopify, slideshare or github have in common? They’re all, along with more than other 800.000 existing websites running Ruby on Rails. How about staying behind such tech success by yourself?
As we make our living from using open source projects we feel that we owe something to the community, that we need to pay back our own contribution. To create the greater good that everyone may benefit from. Yeah, we’ve all heard that before, right? ;-) But besides paying a debt of gratitude, are there other reasons for opensourcing our own code? What exactly makes us do the open source?
You have one of the greatest ideas of your own software business, but you don’t have a technical background, huh? You don’t have to become a developer at a straight moment. It just doesn’t make sense. Instead of focusing efforts on developing your project you’ll end up swamped with poor, lonely fragments of code that simply won’t work.
The specificity of our business field lets us to reap the benefits of the Internet environment and work with our clients remotely. By sharing mutual approach to e-business, we and our customers have worked out the key to success. And the name of this key is transparency.
Have you ever struggled with the information chaos your team makes every day? Have you ever been lost in communication of your own project? Dealing with a non-transparent interaction within your development company gives you a headache? We know the pain, we've been there. And our experience has cracked that hard nut.
So, you're lucky to have the opportunity to work remotely from home. Every day, regularly, occasionally? Still, you've got the perfect occasion to taste the sweet lure of slacking. And to be honest – from time to time – it's absolutely okay.
Remember how many times you refused things, just because your infantile stubbornness told you so?
All good things come to an end. We have left Wrocław wiping tears from our eyes, enriched with the knowledge, experience and positive memories. And the very best feeling about the Silesian creative ruby fuss is that Prograils prides itself in being one of the official supporters of the conference.
We've already found out that noise, defined as unwanted sound, is one of the most harmful factors that affects office work. Workplace conditions in the office widely differ from tones of heavy industry; noise level measured in the office is mostly far from the upper limits established by the act of acceptable sound intensity (85dB for long term exposure)
Unlike many bustling workplaces, office environment should be relatively calm and quiet place that enables productive actions. Especially it should happen in a creative environment. So, as we're proud to be creative ruby beasts, one day we've pricked up ours ears and started to listen. And we've heard a lot. Mostly, mix of unwanted, unnecessary, sometimes actually irritating stream of noise.
