Today is the 13th day of my 365-day Github contribution streak.
Five days ago I resolved to start and maintain a year-long open source contribution streak. After testing the waters for a few days I'm ready to announce my goal publicly. From now until June 18, 2015 I will make at least one commit to an open source repository every day.
Today I am open sourcing a tool called aud. It's a concept I developed while working on distributed systems at Keen IO. aud helps me process log files aurally, without having to stare at tiny, fast-scrolling text all day.
I wrote a post earlier this week about live streaming system audio from Mac OSX.
Any team can benefit from a widely-accessible streaming music server. Sharing the same music increases team flow and builds culture. And funny things happen.
Previously I talked about the concept of flow.
Do you know about Csíkszentmihályi's concept of flow?
In March I had written about using a Heroku deploy hook to ensure your application's dyno(s) spin up immediately after a deploy. It's a simple hack, but it can save you a few seconds each time you hit a newly-deployed build.
Today I released 0.3.1 of Mongoid::Alizé.
