Rant

The random rant of the week by mose.

No rant?

Hmm I have nothing to rant about this week. It's kinda late. I should change my strategy and begin with the rant, collect the links after, it was more efficient when I was doing it that way.

Green Ruby News is a feed of fresh links of the week about ruby, javascript, webdev, devops, collected by mose, xenor and tysliu every sunday.
