Trello recently launched an early access of „Business Class” (if you don’t have it yet, you can apply here).
The wording is perfect – little wink to the airline industry seems far better than „premium”, „paid ”or „pro plan”.
We use Trello on a daily basis throughout every section of the company – from IT management, administration and accounting to keeping track of our digital library and book requests. Yet there was a little fear in the back of my head: we rely on it so much but we don’t pay for it.
Making complex ideas real can be tough for various reasons. It’s safe to say that most of them aren’t getting out of our heads – assuming that just speaking about them doesn’t count. Simple actions can lead to greater outcomes and I’m going to share a bit of my experiments in that matter.
It is said that anyone ever involved in setting up a process of managing software development had an idea of coming up with his own custom tool and workflow. Specifically in web software development.
We’ve all been there. We’ve gone through all existing tools and, this way or another, found our best shot. Heard of kanban? It’s as easy as 1–2–3 to tear it into pieces, take what fits, and call yourself agile. Daily inertia inside a busy software
house hive has proved it all right.
It’s another Monday, so we figured it might be the right time for the new issue of From Monterail with Love. We’re announcing something special this time:

Do you remember the beauty march in Wrocław last year? The amazing event happened and we’re proudly announcing that its sequel is coming in less than a month: the “fresh Ruby-oriented conference in Wrocław, Poland” will take place on March 1–3rd, 2013.
Visit this year’s website.
Just check the list of the speakers, and be sure that the last year was just a warm-up. New conventions, talks fully loaded with meat, and long run of before and after parties. A lot of important mind-changes that will result in hot discussions will strike again, with fresh additions and surprises.
Last year’s discussions were intense and very informative.
Find, talk and grab a beer with us during the conference! If you’re reading this blog, then you definitely should.
You can follow wroc_love.rb on Twitter and Facebook. Keep an eye on the blog for the next batch of tickets if you still don’t have one.
There’s a dashboard in one of our applications that shows data from various external services. The more data we were adding to this dashboard, the worse its performance and user experience was getting until the site eventually became unusable. It got to the point where its user had to wait 10 seconds or even more for the content to show up. Unfortunately, caching didn’t help much.
Here’s the story of what we did to reduce the load time.
It seems like it happened yesterday. I arrived at the flat in a crumbling tenement located in the Old Town of Wrocław and my journey into the Ruby world began. The community was already large and very active, so I wouldn’t call myself Columb, but—at least—I can tell you about my first year experience and share both bright and dark sides of the story.
RubyGems.org has been compromised.
The exploit could potentially tamper with some gems, therefore all of them are assumed to be unsafe to use at the moment. Which means that any deployment involving downloads of any gems from RubyGems.org should be carried out with extreme caution. All downloaded gems have to be verified in order to remain on the safe side.
We recently launched the redesign of our blog, but Codetunes is still work in progress. This is a post kicking off the unordered series of articles outlining some of the decisions we’ve made during this ongoing process.
