Surviving Term Two with Young Children

Summer has gone, the Easter Bunny has been, we’ve commiserated with the ANZACs and the excitement of a new year of school has long passed.  Our friends in the northern hemisphere are celebrating the first signs of spring and the approach of summer* while we’re well into Term 2 – when even the kids most excited… Continue reading Surviving Term Two with Young Children

10 Picture books that encourage empathy (and one chapter book)

I do my best to as a mother to resist the rush rush rush that seems to be the norm for children these days.  I limit their activities, I have resisted competitive sports and pursuits until they’re much older, they have no homework and I give them plenty of time to play and imagine and explore.… Continue reading 10 Picture books that encourage empathy (and one chapter book)

Python: Flask – Generating a static HTML page

Whenever I need to quickly spin up a web application Python’s Flask library is my go to tool but I recently found myself wanting to generate a static HTML to upload to S3 and wondered if I could use it for that as well. It’s actually not too tricky. If we’re in the scope of […]

The Path to Continuous Delivery — Video

The Path to Continuous Delivery — Video

Although I have presented at quite a few conferences and community meetups in the past, I rarely got the chance to have my talk recorded.

Here I share an impromptu talk at last year's Agile Tour Hong Kong on the topic of what I believe are the foundations on where to build your journey to Continuous Delivery. Thanks to Steven Mak for accepting to be my co-speaker within 1 hour of delivering the talk.

Enjoy the talk with all the beauty of my en_PT-BR (English with Brazilian Portuguese) accent.

You can get the slides from speakerdeck

Validate Uniqueness in Rails

Uniquess constraints are an everyday fact of life. For example, in our application we might want to validate that all usernames are unique. We can easily achieve this with a unique validation.

Uniqueness Validations and Constraints

class User  ActiveRecord::Base
  validates :username, uniqueness: true
end

Note that this does not guarantee uniqueness, since application-layer checks are inherently prone to race conditions. Rails will perform the uniqueness check before creating the user, so you might have the following order of events.

# User 1 Checks to see if their username is available
SELECT * FROM users WHERE

'The Build'

What is “The Build”? Well it has changed over time. On Twitter:

Yup, the Twitter intelligentsia takes it to mean the inclusion of build stages, after compile/package. Specifically test automation. At least in 2017 (as the question/poll was posed).

Before 1995, it probably meant just compile and package. Microsoft Secrets (a bestseller with many translations) came out and detailed a way developers worked on a single branch in their SLM (Slime) VCS. Pertinent to builds:

The build was “usually” an overnight…

Buildless JavaScript solutions: collecting the examples on GitHub

Miško Hevery showed me an alpha version of Angular in 2009. I didn’t really get it, so he invested in a small amount of 1:1 to get me to the place where the penny dropped. Angular was stroke of genius stuff, I’ve said since that moment.

I went on to deploy my own test apps in his long gone Firebase-like GetAngular cloud. I also wrote a blog entry and timed it for his first announcement: Hello World, is here. Perhaps making me the first blogger outside the team, though it is impossible to tell really given Google search doen’t…

iMessage crash with keyboard compact view

So iMessage doesn’t like it when you try to open a keyboard in compact view. It also doesn’t like it if you swipe to another iMessage app by touching a search bar or text field, as that activates the keyboard and kills the composer. The way to fix this is to not allow the keyboard […]

Fitness is a big factor in health

It is possible to overlook just why is fitness for girls, therefore, critical while everybody understands that fitness is essential. The truth is, though; many girls are taking good care of the others, they often overlook to find time, operating in your home, and so busy working away from your home. This could be an … Continue reading "Fitness is a big factor in health"
