This is the inaugural post. I hope to capture all of the truly useful links I referenced for work and play in the previous week. This week will be a little short since I'm starting it on a Sunday…
- Best Practices in Evaluating Elastic Load Balancing Great information now that I'm relying on AWS's elastic load balancers.
- Infrastructure tooling patterns A good reminder of the various sysadmin/devops pain points and the tools mitigate them.
- Writing and documenting APIs:
- Using method_missing and respond_to? to create dynamic methods method_missing, especially from deep in a long ancestor tree, can be slow.
The most useful article for me was Jay Field's Alternatives for Redefining Methods. More about why it was so useful once my code clears a third party sanity check!
