Jun 20, 2017 @ 10:43:02

The Three Devs and a Maybe podcast, hosted by Michael Budd, Fraser Hart, Lewis Cains and Edd Mann, has posted their latest episode: "Servers, Upgrades and a little Cryptocurrency"

In this weeks episode we start off by discussing Edd’s recent Server build, touching upon the hardware specifications, OS/ZFS-pool choices and monitoring configuration. We then move on to highlight the value in splitting up computational intensive tasks into queued jobs, defensive programming in JavaScript and handling querying ever increasing data-sets. Finally, we talk about keeping on-top of Software/Dependency upgrades, moving over to platforms such as AWS and Ethereum.

I usually shout out tweets and try to spread the word that way, but this time I believe I’ve got such a neat (and somewhat random) collection of productivity boosting entries, they deserve a collective article.

Included in his list of helpful tools and tips are things like:

  • git-fresh
  • [Composer changelogs](Composer changelogs)
  • Changing PhpStorm's configuration for faster rendering
  • Parallel downloads [with Composer](Composer parallel downloads)
