The 12 principles behind the Agile Manifesto
  1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage.
  3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
  4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
  5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
  6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
  7. Working software is the primary measure of progress. Agile processes promote sustainable development.
  8. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility.
  10. Simplicity--the

Changelog Admin Feature: Add Images by URL


Many objects in Changelog's system have attachable images. People have avatars. Sponsors have logos. Topics have icons. Etc.

Currently, we attach images by downloading them to our machines and then uploading them via a file input on the forms. An example form:

This is fine, but many times the images already exist on the web somewhere.


Wire for Podcasters


Most podcasters (ourselves included) begrudgingly use Skype to record our shows for two reasons:

  1. Most reliable call quality/lacency
  2. Network effect (guests usually have an account already)

Quick & dirty script to open the current directory's git repo on BitBucket. Surely there's a better way

jerodsanto / httperf_big_cookies.rb
Created Aug 5, 2013
Httperf only allows cookies of 256 bytes or less. Rails sets cookies that are bigger than that. This will result in output such as `httperf.sess_cookie: truncating cookie to 245 bytes` and failed Rails sessions. This brew adds the `--big-cookies` option to the `httperf` formula so you can use it with Rails.
View httperf_big_cookies.rb
