#63 SoundCloud's Ruby/Rails Upgrade Project, Puma 6 Release, Rack 3.0, and more... 🌻 πŸˆβ€β¬› 🎡

Happy Thursday!

Here is issue #63 of our newsletter, where we collect news and tools that we find interesting for your current or future Rails projects:

1. SoundCloud, the world’s largest music and audio platform, decided to work with us on their majestic monolith's upgrade project. This was quite a big upgrade project: From Ruby 1.9 to 2.5 and from Rails from 2.3 to 6.1. 🎢

2. Puma 6 was released on Oct 19th, 2022. What are you waiting for to upgrade? It includes performance improvements and experimental Rack 3.0 support! πŸˆβ€β¬›

3. Need to upgrade your React.js frontend? Is your Node.js app still stuck on Node 10? We launched a new productized service to help our clients upgrade their JavaScript code!

4. Are you doing all you can to secure your Rails app? Our friends at Planet Argon recently shared Cybersecurity best practices. πŸ”

5. dry-rb recently announce the adoption of zeitwerk for code loading -- They have noticed significantly faster boot times for their libraries. Have you started using zeitwerk already? If not, check out our migration guide. πŸ’Ž
