rspec still doesn’t support rails 6 parallel testing… what are people doing instead?

Unlimited mode on AWS means that your workloads won’t get slowed down, but you will definitely end up spending more money than if you had just used a constant-perf instance and auto scaling.

Burstable instances are not appropriate for web applications. T3 instances explicitly have 40% baseline performance - that’s not good for a workload that should be pretty much constant. Use constant-performance instances and use auto scaling to deal with changes in load.

Tolkien said that war was “utter stupid waste... not only material but moral and spiritual" and that in WWII "we are attempting to conquer Sauron with the ring”.

We just raised $450M in Series D funding for Anduril. It will be used to turn American and allied warfighters into invincible technomancers who wield the power of autonomous systems to safely accomplish their mission. Our future roadmap is going to blow you away, stay tuned!

Reddit appears to be going with the “if I call it something else, it’s not a crime” legal theory here, which has brought you classics like “I’m not driving, officer, I’m _travelling_, so no I do not need a driver’s license!”

Engineers get really enamored by “eventing” or pub/sub strategies but then build stuff that only gets used by one producer and one consumer. It should be a refactoring, not a starting strategy.

My first job was at a startup that was providing exactly this: stripe.com/identity ... 10 years ago.

Addendum: This does not necessarily mean 1 tenant == 1 customer all the time. Often you have a "shared environment" where customers start, and then they "graduate" to single tenancy.

I’ve seen B2B companies scale really easily with “single tenant” strategies - each (big) customer gets their own databases, their own pool of web servers, etc. it reduces the blast radius of problems, but also increases headroom to scale DBs vertically.
