Remote work

Are you working remotely already? We Ruby developers are more connected to remote work than the other language developers. I thought it would be relevant to share here my personal experience on this subject.

worque - Manage your daily notes like a boss

Ever stunned when your boss suddenly asked what you’ve done yesterday? Wanna check all your daily tasks without exiting your favourite editor VIM? Something to report on daily stand-ups? Then worque is definitely a right tool for you! Read more about it here allows you to create HTTP endpoints with custom responses (aka mocked web services). Every mock will be assigned a unique link that can be used to access it. All requests to this endpoint will be tracked and can be inspected on the history page. It also allows realtime debugging of the incoming requests by showing live updates on incoming requests to the endpoint.
