Happy Programmer's Day! Syndicode news

Happy Programmer’s Day!

Today is a special day! For all of us. Well, for those who code. Programmers’ Day is celebrated on the 256th day of the year because this is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, and the highest power of two which is less than 365. To make it clear, hexadecimal 100th, or the 2^8. Complicated? As everything in the programmer’s world! Happy Programmer’s Day!

19 CodePen modern analogs

Editing the article by Vadim Tsvid about Ruby on Rails and DataTables plug-in we again encountered our main article-design-problem – the code. Because when you try to make the code visible in your article in a relevant way, you want to take less effort and not editing every single line of it. Especially if you have up to a hundred code lines in a single tutorial! Vadim created great posts, but we know that the code could be presented better: with the color, highlights and so on. We could have been using CodePen for that, but it doesn’t support Ruby… That is why today we decided to write about 19 CodePen modern analogs! That somehow could help us with presenting our frontend and backend code in the future articles. We know that most of them neither support Ruby by now, but we have to find out as many good CodePen alternatives as we can.
