I am building larges scale web-apps with AngularJS and I have no issues with debugging or performance that I need to move to another framework. Once you know the paint points of any framework you work around them.

I owned an early Macbook Pro 2011 model. I had the logic board replaced 4 times and the 4th time paid out of pocket. After that one burnt out I gave up and bought a new computer. Simply the worst computer I ever owned.

For what it's worth, Hewlett-Packard had a very similar problem with a line of theirs using the same GPU (and the same lead-free solder), and Microsoft's Red Ring of Death is fundamentally the same problem.

The fact that you can only get a discrete GPU'd MBP now if you buy the most expensive model while the Iris Pro is capable of doing <i>everything</i> a discrete GPU did indicates that Apple's cut their losses with this technology. The motherboard's fine. The decision to accede to EU environmental mandates was the point of failure.

No one in the industry sufficiently tested leadfree solder in GPU BGA mounts before going into production and to be fair, it was a year before people started noticing failures. Apple's dismal head-burying response only made it worse.

I only replaced my logic board once before it died, but I consider it the best -and- worst computer I ever owned. Outside of the fact that the board design was $*#$#387 and that it didn't have USB 3, it was a great computer in that it was fast, solid, light and easily upgraded. As prices came down, I kept upgrading the RAM and storage.

They're splash video has the same chords as Wrecking Ball.

hehe you won the internet for spotting that! :D

I originally found the free audio on a royalty free site. The video is very outdated now compared to the product, but at the time all we had were photoshop mockups of the UI and a vision! :D

Anyone who has used a mac before will spot that it's made from a ton of panning around images in iMove. Guilty as charged... :-P

I don't use LinkedIn or have a résumé because I think both are a waste of time and I don't care. Its great to be a programmer where the job market is in such demand you have the option of not doing the following above.

I like cubicles and would prefer to be in my own box than in an open space concept room. Cubicles reduce noise. Respects my privacy, and puts up barrier against people distracting me.

I wish more startups had cubicles.

Same here. Cubicles with walls high enough that I don't constantly see everyone and vice-versa work pretty well for me.

I had to do deal with DDOS attacks in the past and DDOSArrest worked like a charm to mitigate the problem.

BTW, does anyone know how what their prices are like?

(Their site doesn't have seem to have pricing info, just "Get a Free Quote" forms.)

Anecdotal evidence vs Anecdotal evidence. I guess its a matter of picking your preference.

I purchased the Payment Gateway book and regretted it. The only essential tool I see on the list is Sidekiq and the rest is just bloat.

I really liked Pete's book - to the point, and let me get going quickly.

I think it can be hard to accurately judge the value of something as focused as a book that is so specifically targeted.

In particular, I feel like the book gets you to a complete end to end Rails+Stripe.js system much much faster than I could have cobbling everything together myself.

If you'd like, you can email me any specific problems you had with it and I'll see what I can do about making future versions better. pete@bugsplat.info

I use vim everyday and I don't find this game easy to play.
