    > We don't donate to OSS software which we use, because we're legally not allowed to.

    > I routinely send key projects, particularly smaller projects, a request to quote me a commercial license of their project, with the explanation that I would accept a quote of $1,000 and that the commercial license can be their existing OSS license plus an invoice. My books suggest we've spent $3k on this in 2015. My bookkeeper, accountant, and the IRS/NTA are united on this issue: they don't care whether a software license is OSS or not. A $1k invoice is a $1k invoice; as a software company, I have virtually carte blanche to expense any software I think is reasonably required, and I think our OSS is reasonably required.

    > I would do this more often if OSS projects made it easier for me to do so. Getting me to pay $1,000 for software is easy; committing me to doing lots of admin work over the course of a week is less easy. Take a look at what e.g. , which is an OSS project with a commercial model, does. Two clicks gets me to a credit card form. If I actually used Sidekiq, Mike would have had my credit card on file the day that form went up.

    I assume that Mastodon is using ActiveJob to push tasks to the queue. According to the creator of Sidekiq, bypassing ActiveJob would lead to significantly lower resource usage:

    There could be a "master" worker, which serves as a coordinator and manager of the others. It can start or stop processes depending on your configuration. It can monitor the health of processes, kill those that go past a memory limit or execution time, and start new ones. (Sidekiq Enterprise)

  • Running cron jobs in the cloud — Amazon EC2 vs AWS Lambda
    3 projects | | 19 Apr 2022
    The first solutions to general automation in the cloud ran on Amazon EC2: companies would spin up a machine and use it for cron jobs, or they’d install a layer of middleware on top of EC2, such as Sidekiq. These solutions were unsustainable due to overspending on idle machines. Running cron jobs using Sidekiq and similar scheduling systems also meant that the software engineering teams had to maintain an application layer for scheduling the jobs, and this resulted in unnecessarily tight coupling of cron jobs to the business logic of the given applications.
