I wondered if animated QR codes for data transfer were a thing, and it seems someone tried it. Topped out at 9KBps whereas simple IrDA can achieve up to 4Mbps, but still cool https://divan.dev/posts/animatedqr/
Gotta love Heroku; they get new Rubies faster than Homebrew does :-D https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/ruby-support#ruby-versions
Interesting conundrum: We've recently moved a project to LetsEncrypt and now between 1-2% of our users can't use our product anymore. (Because of the missing root cert on their ancient OS)
On one hand I can totally understand why people are using old hard- and software, with Money being the main reason - On the other hand, yo, you're using an unmaintained, inherently insecure operating system to use the interwebs. STAHP, forcrissakes, STAHP.
"Why would you *not* use [insert statically-typed language here]?"
If you don't know how to answer this question or are tired of answering it, here are five reasons you might use a dynamically-typed language: https://codingitwrong.com/2021/11/23/why-use-dynamic-typing.html
Another #RubyConf21 blog post. This time I’m giving an overview of where Ruby has been recently and where it’s going. I’d be curious if anyone has a different view on any points. https://bignerdranch.com/blog/where-is-ruby-headed-in-2021/
Sad to log out of the #RubyConf2021 Discord now that chatter has died down. I'm sure the other attendees are glad to not hear from me 😀
It's unfortunate to me how many prominent Rubyists at #RubyConf2021 said "Twitter is the one way to keep up with me" (including the conference itself). I'd love if everyone used fedi, but at least make an email address/home page/RSS feed available. You'd think that Ruby would be one of the communities that would have the *most* social concern with birdsite
"Literally every book says not to use class variables. So you might be surprised to learn that Rails uses them extensively."
Actually, that makes me *less* surprised to learn that. #RubyConf2021
Blog post: a walkthrough of using TypeProf-IDE, a VS Code integration that allows real-time type analysis and developer feedback of Ruby 3.1 code. #RubyConf2021 https://bignerdranch.com/blog/live-ruby-type-checking-with-typeprof-ide/
I'm probably going to end up powering through to get VS Code working after all. MUCASWUC: Matz uses Code and so we use Code. #RubyConf2021
Ruby 3.1.0 Preview 1 Released https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2021/11/09/ruby-3-1-0-preview1-released/
"JRuby has a huge number of tears 😢" is probably what Chris Seaton said in his #RubyConf2021 presentation
lol hashtag Freudian slip
Watching this talk on perceptual learning, I'm not really sure how to apply it, but hopefully if I see enough talks on perceptual learning I'll be able to 😉 #RubyConf2021
VS Code is continuing to VS Code: two different separate silent failures I had to work through to get Ruby launching from within VS Code. I am just so extraordinarily done with fiddling with silent failures. #RubyCode2021
