Working with Ruby is a lot of fun. Building Software in general is an incredibly exciting profession.
But sometimes the confines of an office can feel a bit overwhelming. You could always change jobs, right? Well, at some point it just did not cut it anymore.
I will talk about my journey from working for startups and small companies to becoming a location independent freelancer and eventually consultant. Pointing out some pitfalls and sharing incredibly stupid mistakes that happened in the first attempts of this journey and listing a number of reasons and circumstances when you definitely should not seek out this kind of life (yet).
Also I will talk about the awesome feeling of accomplishment, when you finally "get it" and are able to sustain this lifestyle that allows you to eventually travel the world.
This talk is about the steps we took for preparing our rails e-commerce application for TV commercials / peak traffic. This includes:
- Moving from AWS to Google Cloud
- Introducing HTTP level caching with varnish
- Dockerizing everything and scaling with Kubernetes
- Building a new frontend with react + typescript
- Related pitfalls ;)
