Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm the creator of GoRails, Hatchbox.io and Jumpstart. I spend my time creating tutorials and tools to help Ruby on Rails developers build apps better and faster.

About This Episode

I recently became a maintainer of the Sequenced gem for Rails, so this lesson we walk through all the different things for maintaining a gem and making sure it works with the latest Rails versions.


Derrick Reimer recently posted on Twitter looking for a new maintainer of an old Rubygem of his called Sequenced. I already maintain a few gems like this, so I figured why not. This is a walkthrough of all the decisions I made walking through the gem, updating things and making it more maintainable for the long-term.
