Tip #15 - Read Other People's Code

It is a great tip, and one I do fairly often, go download some code and read it until you understand it.

This is a short tip!

Sometimes you just need a different perspective.

Getting and installing say, restful authentication, or downloading the Joyent Connector and reading through some of the code will give you lots of good ideas about where to go and what to do in your own application development.

A great one for the intermediate Railsite is the Caboose sample apps These really give you a new view on how to make an app.

Anyway, happy hunting!
