Step 0:

Get Homebrew installed on your mac if you don't already have it

Step 1:

Install highlight. "brew install highlight". (This brings down Lua and Boost as well)

Mutt, Gmail and GPG

GPG / Mutt / Gmail


This is a collection of snippets, not a comprehensive guide. I suggest you start with Operational PGP.

Here is an incomplete list of things that are different from other approaches:

  • I don't use keyservers. Ever.
  • Yes, I use Gmail instead of some bespoke hipster freedom service
# unicorn_rails -c /data/github/current/config/unicorn.rb -E production -D
rails_env = ENV['RAILS_ENV'] || 'production'
# 16 workers and 1 master
worker_processes (rails_env == 'production' ? 16 : 4)
# Load rails+github.git into the master before forking workers
# for super-fast worker spawn times

Summing up contextual influence on systems architecture
1. Monolithic applications and architectures can vary in their monolithness. This is an under-specified description.
2. Microservice applications and architectures can vary in their microness. This is an under-specified description.
3. Microservices and monolithic architectures have both benefits and disadvantages.
4. Organizations will exploit those benefits while working around any weaknesses.
5. Success of the business is a large influence on the exploitation of benefits and implementation and costs of workarounds.
6. All benefits and work arounds are context-sensitive. Meaning that they are both technically and socially constructed by the organization that navigates them.
7. Path dependency is a thing. History matters and manifests in these architectural decisions and evolution in an organization.
8. Patterns exist to inform practice, not dictate it. Zealous adherence to an architectural pattern brings peril when it is to the exclusion of cultural context in actual practice.
9. Architectural patterns w

Response to a dude who asked about heaven.

@holman got a request about our deployment system, heaven

I know it's not a high priority, but has there been any activity on open-sourcing the core Heaven gem?

There is. I've been working on extracting the non-GitHub specific parts into two gems. This first is a CLI portion called hades. The second is an HTTP API portion called heaven.

When you open source something previously used as in internal tool like Heaven, Hubot, Boxen, etc., how do you manage and hook in the parts that need to stay internal?

Normally I focus around four questions:

"Logic Programming can be broadly defined as “using logic to infer computational steps from existing propositions” However, mathematical logic cannot always infer computational steps because computational systems make use of arbitration for determining which message is processed next by a recipient that is sent multiple messages concurrently. Since arrival orders are in general indeterminate, they cannot be inferred from prior information by mathematical logic alone." - Carl Hewitt
