I’ve been busy getting my new course hellorails.io in better shape to launch this week. While doing that it was recently announced that the first release candidate for Rails 6 was out. I took some time to talk about news, updates to my kickoff starter template for ruby on rails as well as another project I’m teaming up on with some friends.
One of the biggest challenges in getting started with testing is just that—the simple act of getting started.

Applications are often made up from multiple processes that must be running in order for the application to run. Services like Heroku take the hassle out of running them but, if you’re on your own server or still in development, things are a different story. Procodile makes your life as a developer and a sysadmin better.
