…issue tracker we could simplify the gem code a bit, so instead of serializing Time objects we could work with numbers .

So, when updating your application to use the :hybrid serializer, don't forget to do a double check of whatever kind of data the app stores in your users cookies and look for possible backwards incompatibility. And if you want to take a closer look on how this was implemented, be sure to check the related issues and pull requests on the Rails repo: …

Recently we upgraded our server infrastructure for Freckle Time Tracking and in the process wanted to improve how we serve SSL.

If you don't know much about this, it's fine—there's a few simple steps you can take to make your website more secure and faster loading in the process. _Important: of course, there's no absolute security, and I make no claim that what I describe here is secure and will work for you. Use it at your own risk._

Long story short, you'll …

…ScaleArc is allowed to cache. Caching in ScaleArc is TTL ( Time To Live)-based caching, meaning that a read query's results are cached in ScaleArc. If that read query is seen again before expiring, the query is not run again on the database server but rather served from the cache. Once the timer for the cached query expires, the query will be issued on the database again. Caching of course only works for reads, which are not in an explicit transaction (autocommit is on and no …

The article Making Wrong Code Look Wrong by Joel Spolsky is a classic take on a programming concept that you should still, always keep in mind when writing your code: You should try to write your code so that it's more difficult for things to go wrong...or at least more obvious when things do.

It was written Some Time Ago - so take his prescriptions with a pinch of salt and apply your intelligence and ingenuity.

It's the vibe of the thing that matters here :)

…is actually much larger than one would think: Percentile 50th 60th 70th 80th 90th Time from Style → Layout 132 ms 182 ms 259 ms 410 ms 820 ms

By dispatching the font requests immediately after first style calculation the font download will be initiated ~130ms earlier at the median and ~800ms earlier at 90th percentile! Cross-referencing these savings with the font fetch latencies we saw earlier shows that in many cases this will allow us to fetch the font before the layout is done, which …

Lock time - Time spent in waiting on Table level locks

Rows sent - How many rows query returned to application

Rows examined - How many rows MySQL actually had to read

In my previous post I indicated that Rows sent/Rows examined ratio is one of interest for OLTP workloads.

And the following metrics are available only for Percona Server, and not because we crippled our tools, but because MySQL simply does not provide them. It is worth reminding that one of main …

Light Table is open source - This innovative text editor has hit 0.6 and pushed out all its code for public inspection.

Freckle Time Tracking is turning five on December 1. In 5 years of being a co-founder of Freckle I've learned a lot of things, but here are 5 important takeaways. Maybe it helps you on your path to product nirvana:

1. You're not a "tech company"—you're a "make customers awesome" company

People don't pay you because you have amazing programming skills and can write nginx configurations blindfolded. People pay you money because the product …
