Coders at Work: Reflections on the Craft of Programming

Posted on October 15, 2013

I think one thing that’s really important is to not be afraid of your ignorance. If you don’t understand how something works, ask someone who does. A lot of people are skittish about that. And that doesn’t help anybody. Not knowing something doesn’t mean you’re dumb-it just means you don’t know it yet.

    Hello Greg,

    First of all I’d like to thank you for creating the gem Active Admin. I’m a junior developer with 2 years of experience and I’ve used it in a lot of projects. I’d like to contribute to the gem and add the following feature, but I don’t know if it’s better to do it on a separate gem or at ActiveAdmin:

    Lots of people use that use ActiveAdmin implements images uploading. Cropping the image only using the Imagemagick’s default options isn’t always the best option. My idea is to implement a page after creating or editing a model that has an image where people can resize the image(s) using something like jQuery Crop ( almost like this Railscast: ).

    I’m pretty sure it’ll be useful for lots of delevopers. What do you think of it? Do you have any recommendation?


Got something to say?

Some html is OK
