Upgraded our buildkite agents from Ruby 2.4 to 2.5 today but not before I broke nearly everyone else’s builds in the process. GO ME

@ryanbigg this was my attempt at setting a good example, “be the change you seek” etc etc but I felt like it was more like my job was to serve as a warning to others

The big positive out of this is that our Ruby upgrade process (for buildkite and for all our machines too!) will now be documented thoroughly and hopefully mistakes like today’s will be prevented in the future.

I should also say: I got through today mostly unscathed because Culture Amp’s team is incredibly supportive and pitched in a ton to help out.
