It's been a while since I blogged. He's a quick story about moving our .NET apps off of SQL Server Message Broker and on to SideKiq.

Here's something I think about a lot... As mobile payments become more popular, some businesses will be left behind because they are stuck in the old invoice model. Taking a credit card payment from your device is really cool tech, but for the industries that require invoices to operate, what does that mean for them? Either apps like @Square expand to include the ability to generate invoices on the fly, or developers like myself will use tools like @Stripe to solve these problems. The problem with an app like @Square adding the ability to invoice is that the app will begin to become bloated and difficult to use. Also, if you over-simplify the invoicing app, no one will use it. Once thing I've learned over the past couple of years is that no matter how simple invoicing sounds, each business adds their own complicated twist making it difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all solution.
