Does anyone have any recommendations for tools/services to help with A/B testing for web apps?

These conflicting paradigms are manifestations of a deeper philosophical conflict between rationalism and empiricism. > Software development as a situated, improvisational activity rather than a methodical, goal-driven one.

Suggestions of platform for writing technical content? http://dev.to? Medium? Which one should I pick? Thank you.

I opened a Medium (and hosted it under my domain at 80 bucks) back when it was a platform that made sense. Now it's not, sadly. Probably a good chunk of people won't even click a Medium story, out of fear of an annoying popup

Yes, Medium has lost a lot of my attention due to the fact that every story, even the most trivial one, is now "premium".

I can recommend gatsby + whatever hosting platform you like - github pages, s3 bucket, next.js etc etc https://www.gatsbyjs.org/starters/?v=2

bartuka18:07:35

depends on your goals, I would rather use https://github.com/cryogen-project/cryogen and github to host your own simple website than using medium with their paywalls [i used medium in the past and regret it]

@yokoyama.km I host my blog on GitHub -- https://corfield.org -- and use Octopress because I started it long enough ago that there weren't any decent Clojure-based static site generators πŸ™‚ I use Medium for non-technical stuff (mostly just responding, sometimes at length, to other people's non-technical stuff). I like using a static site generator because then I own my content, under version control, and could easily move it to other (static) hosting locations as well as easily porting it to other generators.

kmyokoyama19:07:15

I do have a personal website hosted on GitHub, but I was looking for a self-managed blogging platform such as http://dev.to or Medium. I will reconsider using my own website for this purpose as well.

dorito based testing

bherrmann19:07:04

Write tests. Not too many. Mostly integration.

Tests become a lot less mystical when one sees them as a simple mapping of inputs to outputs. Which is an extremely good fit for functional programming :)

dominicm20:07:07

We all argue about how many tests to write and what to test without considering the pieces the thing is built of and what it does.
