    Project mention: Ruby on Rails load testing habits | | 2024-01-25

    Rails isn't super opinionated about database writes, its mostly left up to developers to discover that for relational DBs you do not want to be doing a bunch of small writes all at once.

    That said it specifically has tools to address this that started appearing a few years ago

    The way my team handles it is to stick Kafka in between whats generating the records (for us, a bunch of web scraping workers) and and a consumer that pulls off the Kafka queue and runs an insert when its internal buffer reaches around 50k rows.

    Rails is also looking to add some more direct background type work with but this is still very new - most larger Rails shops are going to be running a second system and a gem called Sidekiq that pulls jobs out of Redis.

    Project mention: Is Ruby a dying language? | /r/ruby | 2023-12-05

    No, it's just no longer over-hyped. Ruby is settling into being a mature production language, similar to Python, Java, .NET, C++, etc. As you can see from the RedMonk 2023 data Ruby is very much still alive with tons of repositories on GitHub. Besides Shopify, GitHub is another big Ruby/Rails shop. Also, besides Rails, there are other new and upcoming projects like Hanami, DragonRuby, and Ronin.
