I Went to Kansas City and All I Got Was a Bunch of Knowledge
- Automate the bullshit.
- Be nice. Be happy.
Found code reviews and keeping gems up-to-date cumbersome
- So they built tools to automate these tasks
- So now they do them a few times a week, easy as pie
Found that setting up servers and maintainig upgrades was time-consuming and prone to failure
- So they built tools to make it easier
- Make an image with dependencies
- Make another image with latest code
- Instant servers!
- Upgrade? Screw it. Boot new ones with updated dependencies!
Thought that setting up development laptops was too hard.
What do you think is harder than it needs to be?
What can you do to make it better?
No Seriously, Vagrant
I am convinced this is the way forward
Too many variables
- Ruby version
- MySQL version
- Node.js version
- homebrew, ports, compile
- "Works on my machine"
- Mac OS X version
- Life is already hard enough.
Be nice. It doesn't cost anything.
- Actually listen
- What can you do to help someone learn something today?
- What frustrates you?
- No one is going to solve it if you sit and stew
- What can you do to make it better?
- It's your responsibility to learn
- If you Google something, write it down as a flashcard
- Ask questions
Embrace being new at something
- It's OK to feel stupid
- Challenge yourself
