The weekend was a whirlwind of camping and deployments. One of these things is more fun than the other.
- Improving Resque's memory efficiency - Assuming you're running the workers on JRuby, anyhow.
- capistrano_colors - Colorized output for Capistrano. There are some quirks, but it's way better than the default output.
- SSH timeouts and reset connections - If you're seeing "Connection reset by peer - recvfrom(2)" from Capistrano, the solution is to add teardown_connections_to(sessions.keys) at the end of the long-running process that's starving the SSH connections.
- Lighting fast, zero-downtime deployments with git, capistrano, nginx and Unicorn - This looks like a promising next step for the big cap process that's getting out of hand.
