Everyone is busy working on their presentations

The #inspect conference is coming in a few weeks, and everyone who is giving a presentation is furiously working on them. I personally haven’t even started, but all is good, I know what it’s going be about.

A few random things I’ve heard from speakers:

  • Can I fly a drone for my presentation?
  • Hey Todd, do you mind if I do a little dig at you in my talk? (my answer was sure. Probably about how I always end my sentences with a higher pitch, kind of the opposite way normal humans do it. I’m sure he actually meant RMQ and not me specifically)
  • Does the projector support HDMI? I need to hook up some devices.

Lastly, we hired a good video team to record the conference, which will be awesome for everyone who can’t physically make it.

If you missed the last issue, you can find it here: issue #26.

Happy coding, Todd Werth (@twerth)

RMQ News

I’m still busy working on version 0.6.0, which I plan on releasing before or during the #inspect conference. I made a 5 minute video with a sneak peek of the features, the best part is at the end of the video:


The number of people contributing to RMQ has risen lately, which is exciting. If you use RMQ and want to help out, there are many ways. Just go ahead, or feel free to ask me what you can do.

I spoke to a few people, and they want to help with improving the documentation. It is one place I think RMQ really needs some help.


motion-motion gem, huh?
