The random rant of the week by mose.

Green Ruby New Generation

We had this week a very productive meeting with xenor and tysliu in our preferred coffee shop. I explained more in detail my workflow and my quality criterias. So now they can feed the links section and become the major editors of Green Ruby. I Still keep the role of the publisher. I get their links, I clean up stuff, verify freshness and reachability, remove superlatives, fix category if needed.

Special thanks a lot to Xenor and Tysliu (aka. Simon). Now they do the heavy lifting and they are the reason why Green Ruby is still in your mailbox every week.

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