I mean to write some longer pieces here soon. I’ve put some energy into various posts on forum.stupididea.com. I would especially recommend the links category, which is where I put interesting things that I find through my feed reader. I also write over at my company’s blog on software development topics, mostly Ruby-related: http://wegowise.github.io/. When I write over there of course it’s in a certain voice and I have to be slightly less opinionated, so I’ll still talk about software development here.
I should update that my current testing workflow is the one described here. At my new work the testing suite is so large (a good problem to have!) that it’s not really feasible to rerun all or even a large subset of the tests on every write. Also I realized that you mentally start waiting for the full suite to finish with a notification before continuing your work. Now I test just the file or just the test I’m working on, using the rails.vim commands and the turbux plugin to run the test in a small tmux pane. Then I run the full test suite on CI, which can take 20-40 minutes.
