Measurement Monday

Last week was a busy week for Rails folk, as two serious vulnerabilities were publicized and patched (CVE-2013-0155 and CVE-2013-0156). If you haven’t upgraded yet, it is strongly recommended that you do so now.

Dan Mckinley from Etsy had a great post entitled “Whom The Gods Would Destroy They First Give Realtime Analytics”. The post delves into the danger of acting on current information without placing it in the proper context; check it out.

Luke Ludwig from Sport Ngin talks about their experiences upgrading to Ruby 1.9.3, with some great advice about measuring each change in isolation to observe its effects.

Instrumental developer Chris Zelenak created the metriks-instrumental gem to let users of the metriks gem automatically submit their data to Instrumental.

Have a great week everyone!
