Five for Friday – August 26, 2022

Greetings from the wrong side of the country. I’m in the middle of a quick family trip and it seemed like a perfect time to let you know what’s been filling my brain this week.

  • Free can’t last forever – Heroku is discontinuing their free plans – which is a bit of a bummer, but I’m not mad. They probably have a million people like me that run one app. I think a migration to AWS will be pretty straightforward, and free isn’t discontinued for several more months, so I guess it’s just one more item to put on the To Do list
  • I read this article on why Devs don’t want to do Ops – which reminded me in the first half of similar articles on why devs don’t want to do testing, but the answer is the same. Build platforms and tools that make it very easy for them to do Ops (and testing, for that matter)
  • Possibly two years late, but still a great article on how to end video calls without being a jerk.
  • If you’ve become a closet law voyeur like me, here’s a copy of the redacted affidavit regarding the mar-a-lago search
  • I originally wrote several paragraphs for this bullet, but I’m defaulting to the shorter version. Like at least a million other people, I’ve been playing WE, the new Arcade Fire album on repeat for most of the last month. I wasn’t really an Arcade Fire fan before (I listened to Funeral a few times when it came out (like everyone else)), but this recording is the first album from any artist that I’ve really connected with. YMMV, but I think it’s great.
