1. Cloning a Local Repo Over HTTP

    For fully distributed companies like Test Double, Git hosts like GitHub and BitBucket have become essential for collaboration. Rather than hiring sysadmins to maintain an in-office, intra-networked filesystem, we rely instead on shared hosting by experts and SaaS licensing.

  2. Large and In Charge - using Git LFS

    Why might I need Git LFS? To some extent, all software is obsessed with data. Facebook, GitHub, and Dropbox are not very compelling without the data they manage, and Rails wouldn’t be near as widely used without ActiveRecord (or some equivalent).

  4. Isomorphic ClojureScript with Reagent and Node.js

    I’ve recently returned from CodeMash 2.0.1.6 where I gave a talk entitled “Bringing the Power of Clojure to Node.js”. While preparing for it, I knew I wanted to show more real-world scenarios versus basic “Hello World” ones you can find many other places.

  5. Debugging gems with git bisect.

    One of your project’s dependencies just released a new version you want. You run bundle update as you ritualistically cross your fingers. All your tests are now broken. What do?

  6. Configure Leiningen for ClojureScript and Clojure Testing

    I’m currently working on a project with both Clojure and ClojureScript code using Leiningen and found it difficult to determine how to properly set up and test both. I’d like to share with you my journey on testing both Clojure and ClojureScript code using Leiningen.

  7. Mongo to Postgres.

    This morning, I finished a production migration of a client application off of MongoDB and onto PostgreSQL. I’ll document a few things I learned along the way here, and I’ll spare you arguments about the merits of why we decided to migrate.

  8. Hosting your own webfonts.

    When I first added a webfont to test double’s web site, I didn’t realize that only hosting a “.woff” file was not enough to ensure sharp rendering across browsers and operating systems.

  9. the parable of the failing test

    In which my logic falls like an anvil upon the hammer of reason. Last night I had a dream, and it was beautiful. I dreamed about this very story. It went swimmingly, and my status in the world increased.
