Sergio Tapia - Lost in the GC. > Track views in your Ruby on Rails application with the Impressionist gem.

Posted 28 July 2013

Here's another quickie I wrote to my benefit - I have bad memory! This helps me remember things for the future. :)

We've all been there as web developers, how do I keep track of views? How many people have seen this profile page? How many people have viewed this car listing page? You have to take into account a lot of different bits...

Sergio Tapia - Lost in the GC. > Ruby on Rails 4 - Authentication with Facebook and OmniAuth.

Posted 20 July 2013

I wrote an article showing you how to integrate Facebook authentication in your Ruby on Rails 4 website. Hopefully people find it useful as I've had to hunt from multiple sources on how to get this working on Rails 4.

Happy coding!

Sergio Tapia - Lost in the GC. > Dream.In.Code Badge Generator! Share your flair on your site or blog.

Posted 28 April 2013

This is a small weekend project I wrote after finding a Github badge generator online.

I thought, if Github has one, why not DreamInCode?

This was built using:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Nokogiri
  • Heroku
  • PostgreSQL

Check it out here:

    Hello Sergio, I came across a tutorial of yours of a fahrenheit/celcius temperature converter and the links of the final solution you posted have died out. I would really appreciate if you could refresh those links as I am trying to learn programming and trying to complete this exercise with some questions. Here is the link to the tutorial. Thanks

    Hey Sergio,
    Just wanted to stop by and say that after seeing Codecademy so often in your signature I visited the site. Currently working my way through the JavaScript Tutorials for refresher course (only one I have experience with in the catalog so far), but once done with it I plan on hitting up Ruby or JQuery. Definitely a worthwhile learning tool and thanks for sharing!

    I just saw the comment you left for me a while back. The picture is me sitting in my wheelchair. :) I am feeling a bit better as all but one of my surgical wounds have healed.
    Thanks for asking!!

    Actually, he managed to shit on Java, C#, and Lambdas. He's talented. We should vote him up for that, I guess.

    Heh, I'm beginning to think you have made a vow to offset each and every downvote I ever deliver. That said, I can't for the life of me figure out why you did it here:
    The guy just shat on C# and dismissed lambdas as 'confusing' all at the sam...

    Haha, I did the same thing.. to much less embarrassment now. XD I often find myself not really caring how characters evolve over x years later in sequels, but I have to say I loved how Garrus turned out. Those parts added a LOT of awesome to the game.
