1. The Slippery Slope of Docker Dev Environments

    Recently, I built up a local development environment that uses Docker for some critical integration test paths. As I put the finishing touches on this work, I realized there were some far-reaching implications that I had not taken into consideration before I started down this road, namely:

  2. Conditional Rendering Tactics for React Components

    A common situation when writing React components is needing to render a particular component only under certain conditions. There are many ways to accomplish this, but the route you take often has nuanced implications or differing utility based on the current state of the code/component/system.

  4. From NoOps to AllOps

    I have really enjoyed Micah’s recent posts, Embracing NoOps and Are you really ready for serverless?. We share a firm belief that all code is a liability, and that includes “infrastructure as code” code.

  5. A First Look at Github Actions

    GitHub Actions, the new offering for CI/CD and other automated workflows, is still in beta just out of beta and looks promising. In order to get myself acquainted with GitHub Actions, I used the nodenv test suite as a chance to try it out.

  6. Downloading Large Heroku Postgres Backups

    Easily one of my favorite things about developing apps with Heroku is its bevy of console commands that make it easy to manage Postgres databases. Recently, however, as one of my apps crossed the threshold from a small “hobby” tier database to a larger “standard” database, the heroku CLI started warning me that several of my favorite commands could risk degrading the database’s performance and its availability to my production application.

  8. Let's hash this out.

    Ruby hashes are wonderfully versatile. You can store any kind of object using any kind of key and do all sorts of wacky and magical things. Hashes bring joy. Odes have been written to the wonderful “hashrocket” (Ruby’s affectionate name for the => operator).
