There’s a lot of “design for developer” materials but I found “Refactoring UI” was the one where it made me really want to start designing things because I knew what I was doing.

‪2019 is the year I finally get serious about Lean. Not the production method, but the drink with jolly ranchers and codeine. I trust Lil Wayne knows what’s good for me.‬

@veer66 However I feel compelled to show you this, it’s not active record, but I think it’s a good idea:

I like the content on netflix, and am happy with my paid membership, but the “you must bingewatch” interface makes me feel like an asshole.

I was able to stop contact form spam and I feel like I’ve really achieved something. 2019 already done.

Does anyone run/configure/install their dev environment using Docker?

@MikeG1 Good point, I’m going to carefully consider this, and then add it to my list of things I did. They’re’s still time left!

If you’re having linux desktop problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems and XPS ain’t one. Works great for me.

sometimes I won’t click on something mildly interesting because I’m afraid a recommendation engine will give me a thousand of it

‪I’ve always been jealous of designers because it’s so easy for them to show off their work, also they don’t have the awkwardness of, “Come check out my really cool backend.”‬

‪Features and apps that tell you how much time you are spending online is like McDonalds selling salads.‬

@postmodern Docker / k8s anything I’m missing out on by not doing plain LXC?

Feeling the pull to learning containers.

@bentest Ruby is used a lot on the devops side because it’s a nice glue language that makes connecting resources in heterogenous environments easier particularly with provisioning tools such as Chef and Puppet.

If you need to setup a forum, Discourse is awesome.

@MikeG1 If you’re looking for a good book or audio book, David Byrne of Talking Heads wrote a pretty good one that explains music, it’s history, and where we are now with music, it’s titled, “How Music Works”.

Noticing the conversation about Rspec these days never mentions BDD.

‪Prometheus monitoring system is what I’ve wanted for so many years. Already tried nagios, sensu, and riemann. It’s easy to set up and flexible/powerful.
