We are living in a age of ridiculous smartphone cameras. Chances are you will see user uploading 108 Megapixel images and your ImageMagic crushing when ActiveStorage variants process them. In this article I’ll show you a solution [more inside]
A broad look into the Apple M1 from the perspective of a Ruby Developer. We look at a lot of the different aspects; Docker, asdf Ruby, Visual Studio Code, and more. https://www.driftingruby.com/episodes/a-rubyist-s-apple-m1-review

Hello, I have put together (extracted really) a little helper class
for seasons and bundled up in the season-formats gem / library
for easy (re)use that lets you read / parse and print seasons (using an academic e.g. 2020/21 or calendar year e.g. 2020). Cheers. Prost. PS: Bonus, yes you can use the new Season class with ruby’s built-in ranges too e.g.
Season( '2010/11' )..Season( '2020/21' )
multi_range allows you to manipulate a group of ranges. Such as merging overlapping ranges, doing ranges union, intersection, difference, and so on.

It’s time to get reflective…time for some deep introspection…so light a candle or two, put some Barry White on the stereo, get nice and comfortable, because we’re going to talk about Blocks.
