I recently became our Developer Evangelist. In this role, my goal is to make the best developers in the world want to work with us. I constantly encourage developers to come out to the many events that we host.
Highgroove really likes Pry. It’s a great tool for digging into your code and seeing what’s going on with tons of great features. However, there are situations where using a standard
binding.pry breakpoint will not block your program and allow you to inspect it. I recently ran into this situation when trying to debug an application that used Foreman to manage it’s processes. Luckily, the pry-remote project turned out to be a great solution.
I’ll be honest. My reaction to my first morning in the Highgroove office was one which I thought I would not be sharing. After talking to a couple other Highgroovers, however, I realized it was a pretty common reaction. To us, our first day felt a little bit like Christmas morning.
