Like many others right now, I've been let go along with 30+% of my coworkers. If anyone knows of positions or needs someone with 10 years software engineering experience writing backend and frontend along with 5 years of React and TypeScript experience, I'm you're guy.

Thought I'd add a little more fuel to the "funding" open source kerfuffle floating around with my own thoughts.

@baweaver Great talk Friday at . Thoroughly enjoyed all the illustrations and showing the ways to warp Ruby in to doing what you want.

@phil_pirozhkov I have an RSS feed on my blog at and I'm subscribed to several dozen using

`bundle install --path vendor/bundle` should be default behavior.

Gave a talk at ChaDev lunch last Thursday on security. Here's the blog post with recorded video, links to things referenced in the talk as well as the slides. Any input is appreciated so I can be better!

The Git Flow blog post came out 9 years ago.

Joel Spolsky's The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!) was published 16 years ago.

@amirrajan but my friend code is SW-0741-4995-9202 if you want to play.

@amirrajan I'm gonna be honest with you, I had no clue GSP was a thing. I just play with friends and have smash parties. I'm probably not very good, but I'd love to get better!

@amirrajan yeah man! What's your friend code? I just bought it Sunday.

@tgourley depending on the type of mold, enough to last the rest of your life.

RubyGems 3 released!

looks like Ruby 2.6 on Christmas is landing with RubyGems 3 and Bundler 2


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

@veer66 I'm not sure that's true. It's just finally gotten out of the trendy phase. Rails and Ruby are the good ol' workhorses of the web that are mature and do what you expect. I'm fine with all the bandwagon folks moving. I ❤️ Ruby.
