Gource visualizations are fun. They’re even more fun when you can show the resulting visualization right inside the project you’ve visualized: https://tube.switch.ch/videos/f03981a4
Lately I've found myself writing proper documentation for projects, even if it's just a solo side project. I've found that a comprehensive, up-to-date README is invaluable when returning to a project after a few months doing other things. It's also been invaluable if a second developer ever works on the code.
Ruby OSS community rant/criticism.
We as a community need to move *down* the stack. #ruby is one of the few language that's not controlled by a large corp. But we've been complacent and are not bearing the burden of maintaining it.
Compile ruby from source, learn Bison, learn C, ramp up on compiler theory, help bare the load.
Right now it's an upside down house of cards where few understand the language at an intimate level. This isn't sustainable long term. Get your hands dirty ❤️.
