git 2.3 released, with Push to Deploy - Gavin
A new version of git might not be that exciting, but 2.3 comes with Push to Deploy, where it will update a working copy after a push. Great for simple production server setups working via a checked-out git.
Helpful Sublime package for Ruby tests - Tom
There are a number of things this package adds to Sublime Text, but the most useful shortcut this adds for me is being able to press
Command + . to switch between code and its respective test file.
Mr Data Converter - Chris
An awesome site for converting CSV/TSV/copy-paste from Excel/Numbers into a Ruby hash, JSON object, Python dictionary etc. A massive timesaver.
Programmer Proverbs - Gavin
At the very least, they're food for discussion.
The Dangerous Hero - Carlo
Back in 2009 I wrote a blog post about the danger of hero-driven development. Jason Knight has made a great clarification about the differences between a hero and a champion.
Track of the Week - Neil
I choose 'High Tea' by 'Roller Trio'. It's dark. It's swirling. It's saxophone jazz-rock.
