HTTP Request IDs are now enabled on all Heroku apps.

Understanding X-Request-ID on Heroku

Each HTTP request that reaches your dyno will now contain an X-Request-ID header. Heroku will pass through existing X-Request-ID headers if they are set by the HTTP client. For requests that lack the header, Heroku generates an ID. Your application code can read the request ID from the header and include it in logs, or use it for other purposes. Heroku will write …

…gives you a clear vision of how performant they are. When you know the number of requests sent for ‘ Request A', you'll be able to tell how much time is spent in each request.

Welcome to the Real World

…of a real world application and not just a testing scenario. Maybe we want to take our monolithic Request class and instead run our requests over some HTTP-like protocol over UDP, or maybe even a serial port. If calling Net:: HTTP.new is buried somewhere in an internal # send method, there's not much we can do without DI. We can monkeypatch or redefine methods directly on an instance, but these are not thread-safe or elegant solutions to the problem. DI is the elegant solution, …

The 400 Bad Request status indicates that the request ‘could not be understood by the server due to malformed syntax'. See the IETF docs

There is also the 422 Unprocessable Entity status code that appears to be popular for roughly the same purpose. I've read from a couple of sources that since the 422 is part of the WebDAV extension that 400 is preferable over 422. I don't have the knowledge to weigh in on this argument. Perhaps someone can enlighten …

The typical RFP for Software that Powers the Startup is from an entrepreneur that wishes to launch a web-based technology business. The request is that we develop a plan to design and …
