It’s Late, Do You Know Where Your Migrations Are?
I’m writing this to you as we’re about to revolutionize the world with our Mixbook software. It’s been a while since we’ve seen any major changes to our site. But now, alas!, we are going to be launching the best online software to create books online. I’m not joking. This thing is really awesome. You can edit all layouts and pretty much do as you please, not to mention the backend is completely redone, which means a faster site for users.
As we speak, over 30 migrations are running on our very large database. For you Ruby on Rails people out there, you have permission to grin. =)
Our proprietary version of RubyAMF is even more powerful, yet I still keep it lean, with little code. I recently looked at the newest version and it’s completely changed. I’ve maintained RubyAMF with a different philosophy in mind, since we need it solely for Mixbook. I did add the ability to memcache the byte stream with a simple command, thats something I think can be super helpful.
Well, apparently dropping a column from a table with ~20 million rows is taking a long time. I’m going to go grab some Earl Grey, it’s going to be a long night…
