I ran into a situation today where I needed to grab a specific version of two files from one branch in our repository and merge it into another branch. Normally I would use cherry-pick for this sort of thing but when you are working with developers who arent used to the way of Git, that can be hard. Especially in our situation where most of them are used to Subversion so they make changes to many different files over the period of hours or worse yet, days before they commit their changes.
Well, the time has come again! Time for my wife and I to start training for the MS150 charity ride here in NE Florida. If you're not familiar with the event, you can get more details here. Its basically a charity fundraiser bike ride from St. Augustine, FL to Daytona Beach, FL covering 150 miles in 2 days.
Hopefully by now you have had a chance to play around with Capistrano and had a chance to deploy one of your apps. If you have and your anything like me, Im sure you ran into a situation where you needed to have a bit more flexibility in your deployment.
In my last post, I covered the basics of what we are trying to accomplish and some basic requirements and setup. Hopefully by now, even you Windows users have Ruby installed and the needed gems, because the fun stuff is about to begin.
I love developing in ColdFusion, but one of the reasons I spend time learning other languages/frameworks is so I can get a feel for what things others are doing that could help make our jobs a little easier. Lets face it, the ColdFusion community is a little slow to progress sometimes and there is alot of innovation happening in other communities.
