Last year some friends and I took part in a charity event to raise funds for Maggie’s Cancer Centres. This was no ordinary event, this was Maggie’s Monster Bike and Hike, a 24 hour challenge to travel as far as you can between Fort William and Inverness which is about 71 miles.
I am not a very old-school Rubyist. My involvement dates from 2005 when I, along with many of my Extreme Programming (XP) colleagues, joined the Great Rails Bandwagon. It is telling that so many of the people who became involved around that time were from the Agile/XP community. We were sick of the mountains of glue code and XML configuration that stood in the way of us getting things done in Enterprise Java.
Sublime Text 2 has been my editor of choice for about a year now. It's a great piece of software, but gradually I've been adding my own config options to make it just that little bit nicer for working with on a daily basis. I like it, and the guys in the office like it enough that it's the default config on our pairing machines at the moment.
