Last night I gave a wee presentation to the Scottish Ruby User Group about Capistrano 2, and some of the ways I’ve been working with it over the last couple of weeks, since for some reason I seem to have been immersed in it for a couple of different projects. It’s nothing particularly groundbreaking, but I figured it was useful to demonstrate some of the things it’s capable of, and how much easier it makes my life on a daily basis. You can find a copy of the slides here, complete with my speaker notes:

The speaker notes are probably completely different from what I actually talked about because it turned out that the way I was setup, I couldn’t read my notes! Hey ho, you live and learn!

A Sneak Peek at
The Internet

If you enjoyed this article, you might be interested in my new project, A Sneak Peek at The Internet. What happens when you enter into your web browser and hit return? A Sneak Peek at The Internet will take you on a deep dive through the network stack, from HTTP, SSL, TCP and IP, all the way down through the data link layer, back up to Facebook's data centres, and then on the return journey back to the browser.

There's more fun, excitement and peril than a Disneyland rollercoaster!
