It’s another Monday, so we figured it might be the right time for the new issue of From Monterail with Love. We’re announcing something special this time:
If you like the series, subscribe to our newsletter so you’ll have a similar digest delivered right to your mailbox once a month.
But for today, we’ve got some free e-books, and a couple of security and tests-related links. Enjoy.
Something to read
If you are a regular developer, chances are that occasionally you need to transform yourself into a sever admin. To make this less painful, I recommend diving into The Debian’s Administrator Handbook.
Building a single page app is still a hot topic. Mikito Takada recently wrote a fresh e-book on the topic that’s available for free. Should you be interested in developing such app with Backbone, go through Developing Backbone.js Applications by Addy Osmani as well.
Another pieces that we collected for front-end guys and designers: Web Design and Mobile Trends for 2013.
Security is hard
When talking about errors, consider including better_errors in your project’s Gemfile. Apart from its output being much nicer than the default, the gem comes with some additional features.
Improve your tests
At last, but not least, make sure you test everything. And I really mean everything.
