If you are looking for a new job coding in Ruby remotely... we are looking for people in the early stages of their careers, as well as more experienced.
Feel free to DM/ask me about it, I've been the latest dev to join the (products) team.
Hey Ruby.social! I'm looking for Ruby-related blogs to follow. The ones I found on https://github.com/planetruby/awesome-blogs are pretty outdated or even not existing anymore. Thanks
Finally launched Faktory Pro, the commercial sibling of Faktory, my background job system for all programming languages.
If you want Sidekiq for Python, JS, PHP, Elixir, Rust or Go, this is your jam.

What I would like from a tool like this would be:
- To know if a build has failed because tests that have been marked as flakies before. Being new to a codebase makes you wonder on every failing spec if its a false positive or not.
- To know which flakies have the most occurrences (and prioritize tackling those over the rest if I have time or just too many)
And I think the best way to interact with the developer would be through an integration with Github/Gitlab/etc... on every PR.
On ever big codebase flaky tests are part of the deal, and usually don't have enough attention or even workflow/tools to deal with them.
I wonder why I haven't found any automated test services (CircleCI/Travis/BuildKite/SemaphoreCI/etc...) with some kind of feature/help to deal with those 🤔
The trickiest part seems to be how to identify/reference them as lines/files/names change across time & branches.
For those geeks that love data, after realizing the huge benefits of powermeter usage on cycling... I tried https://www.stryd.com
Surprisingly the numbers are very consistent with the ones from the bike (threshold power with the 3-9 min test).
It might not help much with pacing on irregular trails, but on road or any steady gravel path its really great. Having normalized power is awesome to measure/pace using laps (segments) on long distances, or on a vertical kilometer.
It's my 5th come back to running and the best in terms of injuries/blisters/soreness, and it might be because:
- I didn't try new shoes, just used the same models that worked for me last time: Sportiva Ultra Raptor & Asics Nimbus.
- I used custom insoles, because foot soles aren't usually flat and distributing pressure is important. Just 60€
- For the first time in my life I've done some core at the gym for an entire year.
- Running on asphalt I focus on cadence and proper step technique.
I'm back to running on asphalt and trails, just for having fun with my girl and complement winter strength training.
We did Sanabria's 3 stage Trail with incredible landscapes http://ultrasanabria.es, and now I think its the second most beautiful place I've visited, obviously Asturias is first 😏
Linux (!) just joined Apple, Microsoft, and Google in adopting the code of conduct I created, Contributor Covenant.
I experienced some "day dreaming" although I wasn't anywhere near the level of sleep depravation that Carlos had (17h riding nonstop on top of the past 9 days)
Its funny how as the brain & body settles into "automatic" mode, so changing gears/standing/tucking/etc... becomes automatic/muscle memory... your thoughts start going all over the place, jumping between topics, like in a dream
This video&song came to my mind and sticked with me for hours to keep the pace stable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Px2R415BWrQ
9hours and happier than expected 😊. It took 1h averaging 35km/h to catch Carlos because GPS tracker had some lag and we crossed paths without noticing.
So many things to talk about! We rode together (without me drafting him) for about 3h until I realized the way back would be about 100km
But still had some legs to do 30 extra km at low effort to eat cake with another cycling friend 🍰😋... do I cycle because I love eating? or do I eat because I love cycling?
Risks aside, long distance cycling has given me quite some good memories, along with confidence on the mental & physical pain thresholds that someone can sustain, but also about nutrition and sleep needs.
It always remembers me of Fight Club's quote: "After a night in fight club, everything in the real world gets the volume turned down."
Still 4 more riders are on route: https://frrt.org/tibr2018/map?center=40.06313,-3.80445&zoom=7 and I can only 😱 thinking the brutal mental effort required, as the body settles into long-distance-effort mode after few days, but the mind with so little sleep goes quite numb and becomes the easiest point of failure.
If car drivers weren't so damm brutal I would go on adventures like this, but just doing a 60km road ride gives you enough reasons to think about only using your mountain bike.
Today the first edition of the TransIberica will see his first winner https://www.transiberica.cc A self-supported cycling race across iberia (Spain, Portugal and Andorra) with 3.500km & 50.000m climbed (similar numbers to well stablished https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcontinental_Race)
Carlos Mazón is almost done, and I'm going to take my bike for some night riding for the first time in 2 years since I stopped doing real endurance cycling (1000km non-stop) to cheer him up, I met him 3 years ago in a similar fashion.
