RVM, Rake and Cron on Ubuntu
by admin on August 24th, 2011
Tennnngh! I read countless blog posts, tried numerous approaches that I found and rebuilt the server more than a couple times. And finally I found what the missing piece was for getting a rake command to run in cron with rvm.
Most of the results I found (on stackoverflow) flagged the solution as adding the path to your rvm in your line item in crontab. Something like /home/username/.rvm/gems/rake my_awesome_task… etc. I tried every variation of that I could think of and got the same results.
I dont use cron every day so this was a revelation to me. I found out that you can set variables, environment variables in your crontab file.

Taming GIT
Using Git - and Git Flow
First up: Git for Agile Teams (pdf) should be considered required reading :)
Second, keep this diagram in mind while reading the following text (image source)
Git Flow
There is nothing special about Git Flow - everything is still commits, branches and tags, but the toolset does add some convenient shortcuts for common operations. Examples include making a hotfix for the current production version, and keeping track of multiple features under concurrent development. Git Flow does nothing special to commits, nor are the branches any different from branches you create by other means. A strict naming standard does make things easier to follow, though.
