RailsConf Writeups: When V is for Vexing
Put on by Bruce Williams and an uncredited Marcel Molina, Jr., this session proved to be one of the highlights of the conference for me personally. My experience up to this point has led to a lot of time spent with HTML and CSS education– thus I spend a lot of time working with those two technologies. As a result, I’ve seen a lot of view code, and produce a lot of the code smells that they covered in the talk.
One particular technique that received quite a bit of attention, and which I plan on following up on as soon as I can is the block helper. It was used twice for the smells that I put out quite frequently, as well as getting some discussion as an alternative for partials. Seeing how I use partials in my own code, this is a very big deal. Anticipate more posts from me on this topic in the future.
