Highlights Thus Far (Jan-Jun 2005)
RedHanded has been around since December, maybe you’ve missed a couple of the great discoveries we’ve helped unearth or maybe you overlooked a cluster of goodness in the comments because you only follow the feed. As we’re at the year halfway, just want to point out the most notable ten of the past few months.
- RedHanded Art Liberation Front, Exhibits A-D, anthropomorphized Ruby
- Sparklines for Minimalists, check the comments, watch the heat unfold, jzp builds PNGs from scratch!
- Rails and RIFE, Wars and Strife… It’s All A Buncha To-do!!, the urgency of todo lists, oh man I love this era.
- Surplus Project Names Need Real Bones, crisscrossing memes, still a few left to flesh out.
- How Do You Parse Tab Separated Values, Rubikichi-san’s cool hack to subclass an anonymous Struct.
- Nobu Grades My Homework, lessons on writing C extensions.
- My Favorite Bad Practices, a few dirty hacks that I’ve always hung on to.
- Catapult Wiki Exoskeleton , a very short wiki, readable, great learning code I say.
- Hopscotching Arrays with Flip-Flops, hardcore (but useful) abuse of Ruby’s most controversial operators.
- Re: haiku.rb, thread here for a little while, sorta lost in translation between Japanese and English versions of the same subject.
Anything from around RH (or your own blog or the web at large) that you want to revisit? Or point out to other readers? Yes?
