Just getting right into it:
- Seth sent in a link to an easy to understand explanation of HATEOAS. We used HATEOAS on a recent project for the USPTO, and it was fantastically valuable imo.
- Dependor is a "set of helpers that make writing Ruby apps that use the dependency injection pattern easier."
- If you didn't see it, the Google Mirror API for writing apps for Google Glass (Glassware, they're called) was released. The Google-provided Ruby API client is here.
- Linepipe is a gem for building data pipelines. I've built something similar (but not yet extracted the gem), and so I completely appreciate how awesome this one is :)
- There was a great article suggesting the use of a shame.css file for placing quick hacks to your stylesheets, so that everyone understands that while you've used some hacks they are Not Kosher and so should not be replicated elsewhere.
- GitHub wrote a great article on profiling Ruby
- Here's a Ruby parser written in pure Ruby. Very interesting, especially since MRI's parser.y is....not small.
- node.js and AR.Drone
- Detecting Faces with Ruby: FFI in a Nutshell
- Here's a Bitcoin Arbitrage project written in Elixir
- Erik Dietrich wrote an excellent pair of articles on How Developers Stop Learning. Here's the first one.
- Stack Overflow thread on the best programmer jokes
