Remote Pair Programming sucks. Here's how to solve it.
View gist:1999816

REAL WORLD SCENARIO (blinking lights)

Mr. Tom Dev wants to remote pair program with Mr. Todd Programmer. Tom is in New York, Todd is in San Francisco. They’re working on yet another blog written in Ruby. Tom fires up Rubymine, Todd fires up TextMate.

Todd’s editor quickly alerts him that he is connected with Tom and that their projects are out of sync. The plugin gives them each the option of using Tom’s file versions, Todd’s files, or performing a git pull request. They both do a git pull and are back in sync.

Todd quickly opens the User model in Rubymine with cmd-shift-N and Todd quickly sees that same file opened in Textmate. Todd then highlights a method that has been failing a test and Tom sees that highlight. Todd makes the change to the file, clicks cmd-s, and that file change is synced over to Tom.

Tom thought there was a secondary change needed in the Profile model, so he hits cmd-T, opens the Profile model and Todd sees that file opened in Rubymine. Todd tells Tom that he’s smoking catn

Open Letter to Mechanical Turk: Please improve the externalSubmit interface
View gist:1596047

Sharon, just to introduce myself. My name is Jim Jones, I’m a senior software engineer at Zvents (recently acquired by StubHub). We’re located in San Mateo, CA.

I am the author of the Ruby/Mechanical Turk integration gem, Turkee ( ).

Recently I’ve run into an issue with the platform’s externalSubmit interface. I’ve posted the specifics here :

My frustration lays with the fact that there is no way to accurately debug issues that arise with posting to the externalSubmit interface. All I receive is an ambiguous “Your request was not completed successfully”. This isn’t the first time I’ve run into this ambiguous error message.

Further complicating the issue, the above issue appeared to be inconsistent on my day-to-day debugging. One day it appeared to be length dependent, the next day those same

You can’t perform that action at this time.
