Hi Leo,

adding our gem should not take longer than 10 minutes. I'll create an account for you first thing tomorrow morning!

As for the brittle piece of PHP software, it doesn't take a lot of effort to imagine that ;)

We'll see you on friday.

Cheers,
Wes

ps: we're in town with two founders and two developers. Is four people ok?

Friday works - we're pretty heads down with a lot to accomplish during this sprint, but send us the account info and we'll see what we can do.

We're re-writing an on-line Academic Integrity Engine - ie we develop software to ensure people don't cheat on their exams.

The original was written in PHP by consultants and is (as you might imagine) extremely brittle. That plus a pivot from actual proctoring to providing a scalable service for use by large testing organizations prompted the re-write.

The new software consists of a Rails/MySQL/S3 back end, media services via WOWZA in Java and an Adobe Air desktop client.


Cheers,

Leo O'Donnell

Hi Leo,

that sounds great! How's Friday, 09:30? 

I think it would be very interesting for us as well to see how AppSignal helps your rewrite. What is it you are rewriting? 

If you like, we can set you up with an account before we visit. Would be cool to see your own data when we show you around in our product.

Let me know! 

- Wes

Hey, we'd love to meet up for lunch or coffee. We're in the SOWA district (south end) and would welcome any other groups in the area to jump in as we'll.

Love to see a demo that shows what AppSignal can do for us - we're heads down in a re-write and would be interested to see how your tools might fit in.

Cheers,

Hi Boston Ruby folks,

We (the AppSignal.com team) just arrived in the USA from Amsterdam two days ago. We're in NYC now, and we're driving to Boston next Wednesday! 

We would love to meet some Ruby developers and teams on Thursday 18th or Friday 19th. We'll be flying to San Francisco after that. We're up for coffee, lunch, drinks or anything else. Just write me an email if you want to meet up!

Cheers,
Wes

ps: We brought some delicious dutch stroopwafels as well!
pps: If you're super nice, we can also give you a quick demo / free trial of AppSignal.
