So, I'm happy to see JetBrains is profitable (https://twitter.com/chetanp/status/1205907182396395525) but I wonder about the fact that so many current software success stories are based around selling developer tools. What happens as we continue to have massive failures on the non-developer side (Uber, WeWork, etc etc etc)? If VC collapses and devs can't find jobs, don't all these "sell the shovels" businesses crater too?

This is kind of embarrasing: A Mastodon issue where they've managed to break Rails' database migration.
(It says it's closed, but people are still unable to upgrade because of it. Oooops.)
@veer66 I use Sinatra and I sort of use Sequel (I do _not_ get on with Sequel models at all and actually ended up making my own abstraction layer, so my Sequel use is kind of at-a-distance)

👋 Hi, I'll be an Andy. I'm a Ruby programmer who's lucky enough to do that for a living, partly. But I fell in love with Ruby at 1.8.6, long before anyone was crazy enough to ask me to do it at work.
I've been an Openedge programmer for about thirty years -- but I don't want to talk about that that!
I live somewhere near Manchester, UK. #introduction
