Introducing ‘Today Icelab Learned’
Last year, Icelab created a small Today I Learned (TIL) platform for sharing the things we learn while going about our day to day.
Initially this was an internal project, but from today we’re publishing Today Icelab Learned for all to see.
Many of the learnings are niche, but that’s kind of the point. There are posts on using Ruby hashes as keyed cache stores, dealing with the asynchronous nature of React’s setState function, authenticating with AWS Elasticsearch when using the Ruby elasticsearch gem, advanced string formatting and symbolizing hash keys when you’re working outside Rails.
There are also tips on how to get Facebook to show images when a url is shared for the first time, how to create nice CSS dropdowns, how to dynamically add class names in Slim and using gzip with CloudFront as your CDN.
