Use github search to find useful code snippets

When getting stuck developing something or just trying to learn about a construct / library, try to use github‘s search. Search the whole github (not just “this repository”, if selected) and select “Code”.

Github is now very rich and you can often find an answer faster than asking on Stackoverflow, or find new inspiration even if you don’t know what to google for.

Here is an example of trying to find interesting configs for ess-mode in Emacs:
