Heroku Incident, SIM Swapping, and security tools

April 22, 2022, noon (1 year, 7 months ago)

[00:00:41] The guys banter about Suns vs Grizzlies, some Tweets between Jason and Andrew, and the Footprint Center. 

[00:06:00] Jason and Andrew were brainstorming topics for this podcast and there was talk about minting the first episode of Remote Ruby and sell it as an NFT.

[00:07:19] Andrew explains the little oopsie that happened with Heroku and GitHub over the weekend.

[00:13:19] Andrew tells us about SIM swapping and what’s been happening at T-Mobile stores.

[00:23:57] We hear about Podia using Brakeman, the staggering results of a Rails survey about security tools being used to monitor your code base, and the importance of adding at least the bare minimum of security tools. Also, the guys mention some great tools to use.

[00:29:26] The guys do some shout-outs to people that left reviews on a previous podcast. 

[00:31:25] With RailsConf 2022 coming up in May, the guys talk about doing a live 4K podcast recording, as well as a talk that Jason is creating for them.

[00:33:53] Jason asks the guys, is it better for an empty form field to create an empty string in a database or a nil value? 

[00:44:03] Chris tells us about a video Collin is doing on assert difference in mini test.


[00:45:37] Jason talks about pattern matching and why Elixir was a quick sell to him.

[00:48:15] Jason announces a surprise he has for the guys and it has to do with NFTs.
