William Curtice, 3/20/14 12:20 PM. I wish to renew the discussion requesting the ability to set a Google Calendar default for Busy/Available for new calendar events. Related apps use the busy/available information in different ways. Reading prior posts on this subject, it is clear that some ...

post about a caching issue, causing 10,000 API RPM. Also, my most clever blog title for Oscars: cache me if you can http://www.mayerdan.com/programming/2015/02/21/cache-me-if-you-can/ #ruby #rubyonrails #caching  
Recently, I was looking at a few endpoints to speed up. We were expecting to send large volumes of traffic to a few URLs and wanted to make sure they were fast. While digging in, I found about 10000 unexected requests per minute (RPM), going between one of our back end services and another.

Sharing my thoughts on Ruby communities in SE Asia. #rubyfriends

http://www.mayerdan.com/programming/2015/01/21/ruby-in-south-east-asia/
Rubyists are a welcoming community everywhere. Some great things are going on in the Ruby communities in SE Asia. As we were traveling I decided I would like to meet some Ruby communities along the way in other parts of the world. I reached out to Rails Girls, and their organizers were amazing, ...

after traveling awhile some thoughts on how small restaurants and hotels can really improve biz with tourists. I helped a hotel in Ghana with some of these items #travel
As we have traveled for months we often have to rely on online reviews. We are forced to as we often show up in cities with no contacts on the ground and plans to see some attractions. This means when it comes to hotels, food, ATMs, taxis, bars, and other activities we turn to the net.

Our friends noted that they wish they had brought an activity tracker on their RTW trip. So, I wore a Fitbit (specifically, a Flex). I wasn't perfect about wearing it and it ran out of battery a co...

Sharing some thoughts on safer refactoring #programming   #rubyonrails  
As you can see from the time between these two tweets it also, was burning away on my back burner annoying me for 8 days. I worked on other things for most of that time while it went through some PR review and QA, but it was still a task to check in on each day. Hooray! Started as an estimated 2 ...

Sharing our travel issue to help other avoid the same costly problem. http://millermayersadventures.com/2015/01/16/travelers-beware-the-case-of-the-stolen-sim-card/ #travel
So, we survived our trip and really ran into surprisingly few issues. We both lost our Fitbits, we each ended up on Pepto-Bismol for a few days in a row, and we both caught a 40-day cough that star...
